This video compilation of the STS-129 ascent is incredible! (and is it now available again after a short hiatus.) It includes video highlights from ground, air, SRB and external tank cameras during the launch of Atlantis on Nov. 16, 2009. It will give you a new appreciation for the space shuttle. The music is great, as well. Not to be missed!

    WOW, I mean WOW. This is not your ordinary NASA mission video. Some camera angles were completely new to me. Views not available on NASA TV. Split screen views (like out of the front window combined with external SRB cameras!), remote views of the SRBs headed for splashdown taken by a chase plane, etc. I’d like to see this in an IMAX format at a local theater. These images are just incredible, and with a soundtrack to boot! Many thanks, Nancy, for bringing this to UT.

    Magnifico! What a great presentation. I didn’t get audio though..
    From the footage, I think I can see how the Shuttle’s nozzles performed the roll maneuver. Always wondered how that was accomplished.
