Video: Space Shuttle Endeavor's Final Flight
Tuesday, 15 October 2013
We get a lot of cool timelapse videos here on the Adventure Blog, but this one just might be my favorite. It features the Space Shuttle Endeavor as it is assembled on the back of a 747 and flown to its final resting place, in this case the California Science Center in Los Angeles. 12 cameras were used to create this video, capturing more than 500 hours of footage that was then painstakingly pieced together to achieve the final product. An amazing tribute to an amazing machine. For me, space exploration is still the ultimate adventure and I'm still a bit sad to see the shuttle era come to an end.
