As NASA’s space shuttle program winds down, several former program officials put together this video tribute of the program. The film is shown from the perspective of some of the 100-plus cameras used to monitor launches for potential problems.
It has some amazing images of launches STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 with a bunch of interesting facts thrown in. Who knew that inertia keeps the solid rocket boosters sailing upward for 15 miles after they’re released from the shuttle?
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
