iPhone camera captures Shuttle launch

NASA’s launch last Thursday was the end of an era – the final mission for space shuttle Discovery. Yet a timely video captured on a mobile phone shows that it was also the beginning of a new era – the dawn of lifelogging. Software developer Neil Monday was on a commercial jet flight out of Florida when he flew close enough to Discovery’s path to see it rocket into orbit.

Re: iPhone camera captures Shuttle launch

I was lucky enough to see the Atlantis Shuttle launch in June 2007. Something i will never forget.
I was hoping to catch a launch last November but it was delayed untill 2011

Spectacular! The trajectory has much more of a curve to it than I expected, but then again, gravity is a pretty awesome force to contend with. Thanks for sharing. Up, up and into oblivion!
