Slow-motion footage of shuttle launches

Photographic documentation of a Space Shuttle launch plays a critical role in the engineering analysis and evaluation process that takes place during each and every mission. Motion and Still images enable Shuttle engineers to visually identify off-nominal events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success. This imagery also provides highly inspirational and educational insight to those outside the NASA family.

"This compilation of film and video presents the best of the best ground-based Shuttle motion imagery from STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 missions. Rendered in the highest definition possible, this production is a tribute to the dozens of men and women of the Shuttle imaging team and the 30yrs of achievement of the Space Shuttle Program.

"The video was produced by Matt Melis at the Glenn Research Center."

The Powers of Ten

In 1977 Charles and Ray Eames made a nine minute film called Powers of Ten that still has the capacity to expand the way we think and view our world. Over ten million people have seen the film and it continues to be shown in classrooms business meetings festivals and retreats around the world. Starting with a sleeping man at a picnic the film takes the viewer on a journey out to the edge of space and then back into a carbon atom in the hand of the man at the picnic all in a single shot. It is an unforgettable experience.
