— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

FINAL LIFT-OFF.

With the final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the closing of the Space Shuttle program imminent, there has been a surge of interest in the significance of the Shuttle, and in our own, frankly humbling capacity to go beyond the earthly boundaries.

So it’s fitting that this film, recorded on cameras attached to the booster rockets of the Endeavour’s final flight, captures the majesty of the Shuttle launch from a radically different perspective. The speed of the launch, as well as the hypnotic evolution from our crisp blue skies, to the vast blackness of space are awesome. Add in the beautiful soundtrack, and you’ve got a video that holds your attention all the way.

Enjoy.
