    That’s freaking awesome. Has to be long exposure time, no?

    Based on the distance traveled, I’d say 10-20sec, but that’s really just a wild ass guess. Could be shorter. Been a while since I’ve watched a launch.

    I just went to watch STS-122 on Thursday. We traveled from Virginia Beach. I am from Florida, so I have seen tons of them. I took my son to make sure we could see one before they cancel the program.

    Anyone know why it rolls onto its back when launching? It would seem like the wings would be pulling it down when it is upside-down…

    I also read somewhere that the Shuttles motors were the most powerful since the Saturn-V… anyone know if that’s true?
