Endeavour Lift-off: Up And Close

Here is a beautiful Endeavour lift-off video compiled by Chase Heavener. He used videos released by NASA which were taken by 4 cameras attached to the twin-rocket boosters of the space shuttle which made it’s last journey to space on May 16th. He put all the videos side by side so that we can take a look at all the action simultaneously. It’s fun to watch when rocket boosters detach at 2:26 and shuttle just flys off into the space. It’s simply beautiful to watch sunlight glistening off the surface of the shuttle in camera 1 (from 2:05-2:25). You can watch all the videos separately here.
