Most of us will never get to be close to the Space Shuttle, especially working on it while it was in service. Here a short by Scott Andrews, Philip Andrews, and Stan Jirman showing the people who made sure that it was running in peak condition. The time lapse movement was matched by some quirky music that gave the video a sense of fun and adventure that the Space Shuttle program signified to so many fans and NASA employees.
We’ll never get a chance to experience the space program in such intimate details. Philip shares this brief moment in time that will stand out in history forever – the last roll-out of the Space Shuttle. I could watch this video over and over just to stare at the details of this wondrous machine. Imagine that this craft was floating in outer space high above our planet, doing a job that most of us can only dream of. This is definitely the stuff that dreams are made from. Innovation meets inspiration through the wonders of space flight.
NASA has given us a world of imagination. It’s our turn to take those dreams and run with them, making something even grander that will inspire NASA to continue with its incredible and necessary work. Actually, it not work. Something this wonderful could never feel like work.
