Oh, you mean it isn't about internet spaceships?

I have been fascinated by space since I was just a lad. Did a project on it at school when I was 7 and have studied it ever since. Until 3/4 years ago, I followed every single mission flown by NASA and had documentation for it all (full on geek). It was a wild ride led by NASA, and other nations projects too, and whilst the decomissioning of the shuttle isnt the end, it is the end of the current era of space flight, and exploration (with the exception of probes/sattelites).

To the OP: Thanks for the video, it brings together the culmination of NASA's dream. The choice of music I believe was very fitting!

Thanks

Haha, no it's about real space ships!

Thanks for the comments. I too have followed the program since I was very young. It's sad to see the economy of the United States turn up some of the best research work the country has ever done. But I guess welfare and health insurance is more popular to the American People. ;) /endpoliticaldebate :P

Don't make me cry dude. We no longer have a manned space program. It's truly sad.

Have you not heard of the secret space program? The USAF has been running it's own space program since before the inception of NASA. And using technology far in advance of what NASA was touting to the public.

I'm not suggesting they're zipping around the galaxy with hyperdrives like Stargate! but they are certainly out there using advanced propulsion technology's such as anti-gravity.

Why do you think the US gov wants to extradite British hacker Gary McKinnon. In his quest for UFO evidence he found logs and staff rosters for ship to ship transfers for vessels that are not registered anywhere. Amongst other things.

Hell why do you think the Mars rover is still going after all these years?

Because during it's regular downtimes when it's conveniently being re-programmed with new instructions and is not recording and transmitting. One of our guys from the base on Mars pops out to the Rover, with a handi wipe and a bottle of Windolene and gives the cameras and solar cells a clean. And a squirt of oil. Then points it at another rock and sends it on it's ways Very Happy

Trust me, there is still a space program Wink

I'm not referring to space, techology, or science for that matter. I'm simply referring to the STS Program from NASA. Believe me, I know there's a lot more going on :)

We'll get there again. Or some other country (countries, more likely) will. Either way, I believe it's a shared endeavour for humanity. We don't need to draw nationalism into such a common goal.

Excellent point! In fact JFK made it a point in his initial race to the moon address at Rice University, that it would be a shared endeavour (exact words). His point was to make it there first (moon), to set the foundation for it to not become a weapon of war. I think they've accomplished it fairly well ;)

those are claimed to be owned by the USAF, but that is actually a cover because the truth is that the station with the Lasers is really....

First, very nicely done!

I am pretty much a fan of all things RL space. For the last 11 years, I've lived in FL (many along the east coast near the Cape) and had the real pleasure of getting to watch that beautiful craft blast off into space. Since moving here, I've not missed a launch - either watching it in person outside (once from the air while I was flying a small plane near Daytona) or on TV. Your video brought back all those memories...

I'm not too proud to say that for each launch I've seen, I've shed a tear as the shuttle has climbed upwards. Mainly it's just a show of the awe I've felt - I mean, it's a pretty damned impressive thing when you think about it. A part of it is the relief that the astronauts have made it up safely... Challenger and Columbia are never far from my mind watching a launch.

Watching your video, I got a bit misty. As soon as you put the Challenger footage on, a tear dropped. I was only a kid when the Challenger disaster occurred, just shy of 7. I was nearly 24 when Columbia broke up...

I don't even know what I'm trying to say now. Thank you for the video as a tribute to something that was awesome, and actually awe inspiring. I can't say I'm a fan of the new direction for NASA. Part of me thinks it's just not right that we're no longer in the business of putting humans into space all on our own. I feel a bit like a great era has come and gone, and that we're somehow diminished as a result. I guess there are bigger fish to fry, but damn it, to think we no longer do this...

I guess I'll have to make a run up to northern VA to hit the Air and Space Annex sometime after they swap out Enterprise for Discovery, and make a run to the Cape to see Atlantis.

I'm a bit further down the east coast. Our memories were basically watching the first 20 seconds on the TV and then running outside to catch it just breaching the trees in the distance! It's been an awesome history.

Ok, I did the same thing lol. When I lived in Daytona, I'd tune in to Central Florida News 13 (they had the best launch coverage) and do just what you said. You make sure the launch is in fact going to go, see it come off the pad, then run outside the apartment and stand in the parking lot watching it climb out. Assuming a clear day (or night) it was awesome to be able to see the SRBs come off.

The best launches for me were the one I was in the air for (a gift I'll always remember from my first flight instructor) and the ones at night on the beach. I once traveled down past Ponce Inlet and stood on the beach at night... Hardly anyone around, and you could feel, not just hear, but feel the sound roll up the coast.

Wow, I bet that was a treat! I wish that was the case for me. I've gotten to see some classified stuff, but I'd rather see the big explosions up as close/best view as possible :)

That was almost a tearjerker. Awesome video.

I'd also like to add that, just because we no longer have a manned space program, that doesn't mean humans (you know, as a whole) will stop reaching further into the great big shadow.

Still sad though. When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut.

I kind of grew up with the Shuttle program and part of me is sad to see it retire. But it has been more than thirty years since its inception and maybe it is time for something new, something bolder, something different. I hope the US and other countries will continue the exploration of space, manned and unmanned. It seems like a more constructive way to spend billions of dollars compared to many other endeavours.

@U.S.: Don't let this get you down. Sure it's the end of one great ride, but as long as you keep dreaming, you can vote for people who are dreamers too.

it will be missed

it sucks we didn't go back to the moon in my lifetime being born in the mid 70s, but humanity(assuming we don't kill ourselves) will someday... i'd just like to see it(by then on my real3d TV)

Thanks for the comments guys. I agree, this isn't the end, just the end of a specific program (STS). I think the next 30 years will be great.

Great video. Just remember guys that the USA wasn't the only one going in space. They are other countries that have space program and like other people said here it's only a specific program not the whole nasa that's going down.
