This is a photo showcasing the colossal size of NASA jet engines that propelled space craft into orbit. I was fortunate enough to see the shear size of these spaceships. In this photo in particular, the size of a single engine exhaust alone, looks to be over twice the size in diameter of the height of the person at the bottom of the image.
