Timelapse: Shuttle RSS Retract

1 May , 2011 by Video

Here’s an amazing, quick look at the Rotating Service Structure being moved away from around space shuttle Endeavour late last Thursday night. David Gonzales and Mike Deep from Project Soar created this timelapse for Universe Today, and David said being able to see the shuttle up close reinforced that the shuttle really is a machine of beauty.

Look for more timelapse and special projects by David and Mike here on Universe Today.
