Shuttle Launch You’ve Never Seen July 30, 2011

Posted by Retired Geezer in Gardening, Heroes.

Here’s a Time-Lapse video of the prep and launch of STS-131.
It’s silent until the end.
Full Screen is better.

Go For Launch.

That was cool. Reminds me that we are capable of being a great nation.

That was fascinating, RG. I saw the launch in May ’10, but had no idea what they went through before they were ready on the pad.
