Space Shuttle Time-Lapse

In honour of the final Space Shuttle Launch here is a great time lapse of the sequence of events leading up to and including the launch of the Shuttle.

After 30 years, the shuttle program, which began on April 12, 1981 with Colombia, has ended with the 135th mission on July 21 2011. Atlantis went aloft 33 times, logging over 125 million miles. The last shuttle will become a museum exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center

Here are some images from the final Shuttle launch and landing
