I’ve seen this amazing video, showing all 135 Space Shuttle launches at once, on two of my favorite sites: Universe Today and the Metousiosis blog. Here’s what they had to say:
We’re not sure how we missed this when it came out last year, but this incredible video shows all 135 launches of the space shuttle program at once. Creator McLean Fahnestock calls it “The Grand Finale” and rightly so. A great display of “fireworks” and a wonderful homage to the legacy of the space shuttles.
The one launch failure, Challenger on STS-51-L does stand out in this video and the words “obviously a major malfunction” will always linger. But the drive to keep striving for the heavens will always be there.
“Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis, and the last of 135 Shuttle launches in NASA’s history.” In celebration of such, McLean Fahnestock created this video-collage, which depicts all 135 NASA space shuttle launches in parallel.
