Photographic documentation of a Space Shuttle launch plays a critical role in the engineering analysis and evaluation of each mission. Motion and Still images enable Shuttle engineers to visually identify unusual events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success.

This compilation of film and video was shot mostly on 16mm film at extremely high-speed to give a super slow motion effect when replayed at 24 frames per second. It is also hypnotically beautiful. Strap in.

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