Shuttle Atlantis STS-132 - Amazing Shuttle Launch Experience

Kennedy Space Center, May 14th, 2010.
I was privileged to travel to the Kennedy Space Center, to watch the launch of Atlantis, on what was then, the final "scheduled" flight of the orbiter (STS-132). This video is my homage to the shuttle program, through the in-depth experience of a single orbiter launch. I believe we should be thankful for the Atlantis orbiter, all her astronauts, the countless NASA staff who made her fly, and the American people who created a space vehicle of extraordinary power and grace.

This footage incorporates numerous camera views from the ground, the footage I took during launch, and video and audio from NASA showing the orbiter stack itself, during takeoff and flight -- in order to experience the preparation and the resulting eight and a half minute exhilarating ride into space.

In places, the timeline of the actual events has been extended slightly to allow viewing of several different viewpoints of the same moment and better experience the amazing feat of launching a spacecraft into orbit.

I hope you enjoy the ride!

MORE BACKGROUND
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After this flight, Atlantis was processed and prepared to fly one last time... this time as "on-call" STS-335, which would remain flight-ready, should either of the remaining two orbiters flights require a rescue mission.

A rescue flight was not needed and Congress, in a rare moment of clarity, appropriated enough money to extend the program to allow the already "flight ready" Atlantis to launch one last time and to become the last shuttle mission of the Shuttle Program, as STS-135.

Atlantis now has a home at the Kennedy Space Center.

Errata: an editing error at the end of the video states the launch was 2012, rather than the correct year, 2010.

  • Great video.. but this really shows how SpaceX has made innovation in space flight, this is so much more complicated (It's complicated in general) But man have they ever perfected how to do it and save money at the same time. Kudos to the Atlantis crew but yeesh it's crazy to think SRB's were a thing.

  • все современные запуски ракет в сша - это липа, бутафория и ложь. а откуда на видекамерах корабля и ступеней микрофоны которые могут передавать звук отсоединения от корабля но не могут передавать звук от воздуха при сверхзвуковой скорости ? очередная липа американская как и липовые бутафорские ракеты илона маска с бутафорскими возвращающимися ступенями на бутафорские платформы в море и на бутафорскую площадку. космические полёты и космические ракеты в сша это липа и ложь. это лживый спектакль рассчитанных на наивных дураков которые верят что сша имеет такие космические технологии которые имело ссср даже в 70х годах.

  • That was rip roaring awesome!! I'm curious. Why is the shuttle venting oxygen the whole time its sat on launchpad? Is it just because it warms up sitting out there and they needs to lower the pressure? That's my best guess.

    AG_ from _83AG_ from _83Prieš 7 dienų
    • Yes it vents oxygen and hydrogen because they boil off sitting on the pad. The tanks are continuously filled until a couple minutes before launch. The hydrogen vented gas is captured and burned off.

  • No forward facing camera on the fake space shuttle flying brick as they do not want you to see where it lands, and to finish you get some bull shit from the guys who you idiots think are on that thing but are really in a film studio, with shit film quality just as NASA did with the fake moon landings.

    • and like all conspiracy hats you dont present actuall evidence. just some swearing and crying. unfortunatly we did film the ISS and took some pictures of the outer planets for an highschool project. Yet even school undergrads can disprove your dump claims. people like you deserve nothing like mockery and abondance. but for some reason some uneducated folks always seem to want the big conspiracy.
