Space Shuttle Discovery’s Final Launch as Seen from an Airplane

We’re lucky that cameras and camcorders can be used during flights, or we wouldn’t have this amazing view of the Space Shuttle Discovery‘s final launch from inside an airplane. There was also a student project that captured the launch from the edges of space using camera-laden a balloon.

    I think it’s funny that I probably actually saw that plane. I live in Orlando, and we can see the shuttle launches from where we are. And as the shuttle reached a decent height, I happened to see a plane crossing our view. I immediately thought about how cool it must be to see the launch from up there…. And what do you know…. This video appears.
