Very well could have been something else nicky... i'll have to see if i can find the vid

I share a passion of all things spaceflight. I came across this which was kinda cool, Discovery's last launch from a slightly different perspective. It gives you an idea of the scale of it all.

This only covers the first 2 minutes of the launch, it keeps going for another 6 or so!



Incidentally the tracking showed it coming over southern england immediately after launch, but unfortunately it was cloudy. Florida to UK in less than 20 minutes, and that was from a standing start! Absolutely incredible.

Hahahaha! Undocked Progress filled with poo Very Happy

Thanks for that video Spudgun, that is really cool Shocked

EVA-1 is on just now, Benjamin Alvin Drew becomes the 200th Human being to perform a spacewalk! USSR's Alexei Leonev was the first man to walk in space, and Edward H. White was the first American to walk in space on Gemini 4.

Anyway, live streaming, as usual, from Spacevidcast!

Spudgun the shuttle travels at 17,500 MPH and orbits the earth once every hour and a half give or take a few minutes.

Oh yeah, and it has to. Not enough horizontal speed and you go sub-orbital... Like Richard Branson's ''more important than Apollo 11'' spacecraft...

What a complete idiot he is.. Don't get me started on sub-orbital tourist flights.. grrr..

Yup, just highlighting the comparison to terrestrial travel to show the awesomeness of it all. The fact it gets up to that speed in just 8 minutes give or take makes it all the more amazing.

What I find even more intriguing is everything outside our solar system.

Upon Discovery's wheel stop, her final resting position will be marked on the runway, and a permanent marker will be put on the runway.

Discovery will be landing at the SLF at Kennedy Space Centre.

400,000 ft, Discovery now entering the atmosphere at Mach 25.

All of the kinetic energy gained at Launch (17,000 mph worth of energy) is now being scrubbed off as heat and sound.

The Law of Conservation of Energy at its finest here!
