Watch And Learn Everything That Goes Into Launching A Space Shuttle In Beautiful Slow Motion

This post doesn't have anything to do with trails or Santa Barbara but I thought it was so interesting that I would share it.  If you are into the space shuttle and beautiful slow-motion photography you will love this LONG (sorry) video.

Watch this compilation video of three NASA Space Shuttle launches, you're looking (and learning) from NASA's own point-of-view. It's amazing.

The film is taken from three missions (STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124) with cameras positioned at "engineering angles" which means angles used by NASA to "visually identify off-nominal events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success." Which really means, angles that normal people don't typically see.

Fire up the video, kick back and just enjoy how amazing a Shuttle launch really is.
