Explanation: Get out your red/blue glasses and check out this close-up of spacesuited NASA astronaut John Olivas outside the International Space Station. Carefully constructed from two photographs (ISS020-E-038481, ISS02-0E-038482) taken during space shuttle orbiter Discovery’s latest visit to the orbiting outpost, the 3D anaglyph creates the compelling illusion that you can actually reach out and take his gloved hand. The photographer, fellow spacewalker ESA astronaut Christer Fuglesang, along with ISS structures and planet Earth’s horizon, are reflected in Olivas’ helmet visor. Last Friday, the two returned to Earth along with the rest of Discovery’s crew, landing at Edwards Air Force base in California.

Link: Wake up astronauts

“The wakeup song has been a part of the space program since the days of the Apollo missions, and now NASA is giving you two chances to be a part of this history! We need your help selecting wakeup songs to be played during the final missions of the Space Shuttle Program!”

The Apollo 11 space flight landed the first humans on Earth’s Moon on July 20, 1969.
