    In November 2010, I flew from the other side of the world to watch Discovery's last launch. My grandson and his parents, who live in Fort Lauderdale had rented a fourth-floor apartment on the waterfront in Titusville, giving us a clear view of the launch pad across the Indian River and flat ground. Then they had a couple of technical glitches that delayed the launch two days and Thursday was raining, so that was another scrub. Friday dawned clear and sunny, with the wind forecast to drop by launch time and we were all in the mood for something spectacular. Then they found a hydrogen leak and that was that, especially after they also discovered cracked struts in the interbank structure. My go home date was set in stone and so we returned to Fort Lauderdale. On 24th February, my Fort Lauderdale family returned to Titusville and watched from the condominium's front lawn. I was home watching on NASA TV and texting them countdown updates and when we got to T-minus one minute, my son-in-law turned on the video camera. He sent me that video later and it was as good as being there. I made two trips to Florida to watch Shuttle launches and missed out each time. I saw the Opportunity Mars Rover launch, though.

    Three thousand, four hundred tons of thrust will make any brick supersonic. By the time the Shuttle was twice its own length above the lightning mast on top of the launch tower it was already doing 100 miles per hour.

To add to that the personnel at Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS did an outstanding job in their capacity in making sure everything went smoothly, without our USAF's unwavering commitment to this incredibly important mission it never would've succeeded!

    I hope someone still watches that can answer my question. At what point is the shuttle actually breaking into space but obviously still accelerating to get out of earths gravitational pull?? It’s before the boosters break off right ??

  73. Michael Blocksom

    Michael BlocksomMonth ago

    +Sebastian Nolte hmmmmm....crazy. never realized theres no specific boundary. makes sense i guess when youre in orbit youre still being affected by earths gravity. but youre in space... very interesting and mind boggling.

  74. Sebastian Nolte

    Sebastian NolteMonth ago

    There is no boundary to space. The atmosphere gets thinner fluently with the altitude. Already at 36 km the air pressure is only 1% comparing to the ground. The US Air Force gave "astronaut" badges to pilots that flew beyond 50 miles (so about 80 km). The most accepted definition for the beginning of space is 100 km. But that is a definiton based on aviation. At that height, the neccessary speed to get aerodynamic uplift becomes as high as the orbital speed. But even at 400 km the is still some atmosphere - this ISS is that high and it loses 50 meters of altitude every day because the drag slows it down. Most people will say that space begins at 100 km. So 328,000 feet. You can see in the video when that happens. But as I explained above: It is quite random and not important. The 100 km definition was made by the World Air Sports Federation, that wanted a distinction between "aviataion" and "space travel" in the 1950s, so that thex know if a record ("highest flight") still counts as an aviation record or not. From a "natural" or "scientific" background, you are only interested in altitude, air pressure etc. You don't care if a certain altitude should be called "space" or not, because it means nothing.

  75. Paul Dunai

    Paul DunaiMonth ago

    Can someone explain why the Altitude seems to hover around the 330000-360000 feet for the last 4 minutes. I.e. it seems to max out at 60 odd miles

  76. Sebastian Nolte

    Sebastian NolteMonth ago

    That is high enough to accelerate to 17,000 mph. The big challenge of getting into orbit is to reach that high sideway speed, not altitude. If you once are in orbit, you can easier can go to higher orbits. It uses the small maneuver rockets to go up to the ISS (at about 250 miles) after the video.

  82. Sebastian Nolte

    Sebastian NolteMonth ago

    Actually it is released less then 9 minutes after the launch. They throw it away after is was empty, so not longer then neccessary. Look at the speed, it is accelerating all the time, using the fuel in the tank. At 19:32 you can hear him aying "main engine cut off confirmed". So the engine stops, they have reached orbital speed of about 17,000 mph, the tank is empty, and thrown away a few seconds later.

If the earth was flying 66,600 miles per hour it would rip our atmosphere away. They say the iss is flying thousands of miles per hour.if it was we could never catch up with it to dock . And stupid air burst is going to control movement in space . It a damn laugh . Everything that goes up will come right back down. Nothing is going to stay up there like they say it does . People like you are so dumb to believe everything they say . They go up and come back down . Satellites are put on balloons. Space is a lie and you can believe it all you want . Have at it .

    I don't miss the shuttle. I miss Apollo. I believe the shuttle ultimately became a white elephant using up money that entrapped us in low earth orbit shenanigans too long. It was great at first but we strayed away from celestial exploration by landing man on another body. Apollo still is the quintessential space endeavor yet to be matched let alone beaten. It is tragic that lives were lost yet we know this is a dangerous environment. It's been almost 50 years since we first landed man on the moon, and haven't come close to it since. I saw as an 11 year old the actual lift off of Apollo 11 in '69. Here is a tribute to that day I experienced: Enjoy!
