Hitching a ride on Endeavour

Stunning video from NASA, showing the launch of Endeavour Space Shuttle on May 16th 2011, from the perspective of the booster rockets.

This video is just amazing. It shows the launch and accent of the Space Shuttle, then the booster rocket detatches and we follow its decent to splashdown in the ocean.

There are several viewpoints, each about 7 minutes long. But the view from the rocket as it falls to earth is something else. You see the earth spinning into view.

Stunning.

NASA put together the following highlight video of the launch
