How can people not get emotional over that. I mean, seriously.

Same here. Perhaps the only spaceflight soundtrack more epic, or more fitting, would be the one used during the Discovery Channel documentary: When We Left Earth. I always wished someone would put that music to the last mission, but this will do just fine :)

I like the tracking video at the end...I believe that's the "famous" STS-106 shot.

Nothing at fault with the subject matter, it's getting people to see it that's the problem.

Yeah, that was stunning, and really sealed the deal for me.

Then maybe we need to attract a Fox executive who'll "accidentially" play that video, one of the ascent highlights videos, or one of the amazing MaxQ videos in the middle of American Idol, or something ;)

Speaking of which, we've not missed the debut of the STS-135 Ascent Highlights video - the one which started off via a SE&I guy on youtube, but now a NASA TV production? They are always special.
