The 30-year Space Shuttle program has come to an end

I woke up early this morning to watch Atlantis land at Kennedy Space Center. Hard to imagine that the same vehicle that we saw launch off Pad 39-A just 13 days ago has since circled the planet 200 times and returned to the ground in Florida. It's a sad day for space fans and I certainly hope this country continues to explore space and our solar system as we move forward.

This is an awesome video that captures every Shuttle mission - all 135 of them - and a little bit of why this program has been such an important part of American scientific history.


  1. Great video, thanks for sharing!

  2. +1 on the video, a real nice recap of the flights. Thanks for posting.
