An unrelated visual effects posting for once - the last ever Space Shuttle mission came to and end recently of course - and it was also the most heavily documented and observed.
As a result - some of the most stunning, breathtaking and tear generating footage i have ever seen was captured of its launch and flight into space....there was even a camera attached to one of the booster rockets, filming all the way down to its ocean splash down. 11.55 mins in - that shuttle seperation shot is awe-inspiring.
Amazing. Absoutely amazing.
