The Air & Space Magazine website has a neat time-lapse video documenting the process of preparing NASA’s Discovery space shuttle for launch, the launch itself, and finally its return to Earth. The time-lapse was composed from photos taken over a six week period. Watch the video below.
Thanks to Open Culture for sharing the video.
