Mesmerizing Slow Motion Shuttle Launch Compilation Set to ‘Armageddon’ Theme

By combining slow-motion footage of the STS-124 and STS-117 shuttle launches captured from a plethora of different angles, and setting the resulting compilation to the theme from the 1998 blockbuster ‘Armageddon,’ this video uploaded to the AmericasSpaceShuttle YouTube channel in 2011 pulls you in and won’t let you go.

A mesmerizing visual journey into, as the description puts it, “one of the greatest technological feats ever displayed,” the video makes us pine for NASA’s glory days and hope for the day when we might get to see new footage of a new launch… maybe shot with something like the Phantom Flex4K?

Check out the video above to receive a dose of nostalgia for yourself, and if you haven’t had enough slow motion space shuttle footage after that, check out this documentary we shared back in December of 2010.
