The Kid Should See This

A Blast From The Past: Shuttle Through The Decades

A Blast From The Past: Shuttle Through The Decades

One year ago today at 11:29 a.m. EDT, Atlantis launched into orbit at 17,500 mph. A bittersweet launch, it was the very last NASA shuttle mission — though thankfully not the last of the excitement for space explorers. 

If you and your kids can handle some sensory overload, watch all 135 space shuttle launches at once. It gave us a chance to talk about the Challenger disaster and provided a new perspective on the 1981-2011 shuttle program.
