The final frontier

I'm so old I remember when they sent the first chimp into orbit around the earth. The advances we've made in space travel have never ceased to amaze me to this day. This video shot across the old radar screen today. Didn't think I would watch the whole 5 minutes after the ridiculously long trailer before it, but it's so gorgeously edited and scored, seemed like it was over in seconds:

Tribute to last flight of Atlantis

Also a related video that I can't embed but so very cool. Click here to watch the International Space Station pass over an aurora. Makes me want to be an astronaut.
