I don’t know how many here keep track of the Shuttle Program, but, as someone in love with Space, I like to follow it. So, I thought I would post some pictures of the Shuttle Launch for everyone to watch.
Location: Banana River Launch Site
Location: Camera Site 2
Location: External Fuel Tank
Starting about 7:25, you can see the Aurora in that video, where Solar Particles and Radiation meets the Geo-Magnetic Field. Very Cool. And from about 8:36 to 9:00, you can watch the External Fuel Tank fall away.
Location: KSC DOAMS
Wow, look at those flares from the SRB’s…
I will start to do this with all of the rest of the lift-offs for the next ten years, until Orion 15 takes Altair 2 on the return trip to the Moon, when I hope NASA does something similar to that We Choose The Moon project that AOL is doing.
Speaking of which, I hope EVERYBODY turns to that website on Monday for the Live Landing.
