If you ever wondered what goes on during a space shuttle launch, cozy up to your computer, hit the full-screen display and enjoy this week’s featured video produced by NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Imaging Services. Taken from their best film and high def video, see some amazing close-up, slow-motion shuttle launch footage, made in tribute to the 30-year shuttle program that’s ending in the coming months.

Thank you for sharing this awesome video footage!  It it the best I have ever seen.  Having grown up during the Gemini and Apollo days I have always been amazed at the launches.  I have never been able to see one in person (yet) but was suppose to see John Glenn's launch but my flight was delayed and we missed it (but we got to see him land, not nearly as spectactuluar I'm sure). This video helps me understand the complexity of the systems involved in a launch.   I remember in grade school all of the classes would go to the lunch room and watch the launches and I remember exactly were we were when we first walked on the moon.  Again, thank you!.
