Space Shuttle Endeavor’s Final Launch
In this unusual four-camera video, director Chase Heavener shows a view of the final liftoff of Space Shuttle Endeavor, shot by cameras attached to the solid rocket boosters. It looks far better fullscreen, and you may want to watch it on Vimeo to see it in HD and get to that fullscreen mode most easily. My favorite moment is around 2:26 when the boosters detach and thus go out of sync as they burn and spin. It’s poetic but also may induce mild motion sickness.
Beautiful by itself, but of particular interest for space nerds. The music is by Ulf Lohmann and the source video is from NASA.
