This is how Discovery approached and landed safely on Runway 15 at the Kennedy Space Center, after successfully completing mission STS-133. Everyone loves the Space Shuttle launches, but the landings are quite exciting too – and terrifying, after the Columbia disaster. I love the pilot view with the HUD.
NASA has released this beautiful, crystal-clear video of Discovery’s launch. It was taken from an HD camera mounted on the left solid rocket booster, during the STS-133.
