Think I found my new favorite Shuttle launch video.

Watch how the entire vehicle pitches over when the SSMEs throttle up.


Crank the volume up...it's awesome.

One should not mothball the only viable re-usable option until another is ready to take its place.

It would be like the USN mothballing the carrier fleet for a replacement design that will not arrive until 10 years later.

If Obama spent money on shuttle launches people would bitch that its a waste of money. Conservatives always used to bitch about NASA.

We're now paying the Russians $500 million to hop rides on Soyuz until 2016.

NASA is one of the few government run programs (the Armed Forces being the others) that have benefited the entire American people.

My neighbor probably hates me every time I watch a shuttle launch.

That's pretty good. I love the aerial shots of the shuttle leaving the atmosphere.
