Caption: View of the Spacelab Life Sciences SLS-1 module in the payload bay of Shuttle Columbia. This photograph was taken through an aft flight-deck window during Mission STS-40 of 5-14 June 1991. The multiple layers of glass in the Shuttle windows may cause interesting reflections in certain lighting conditions. Here, the sunrays seen on the clouds also seem to be seen in space. Note also the way that the light at the Earth's limb next to the Shuttle has been split into its spectrum of colours. This is due to different refractions of the light by the Earth's atmosphere.
