The 115 video is brilliant. Although I'm was kinda hoping one of the future flights which have a camcorder on board will point the camera out of the back windows of the flight deck, so that we might get to see the OMS fire up.

For the de-orbit burn? That would be impossible as the aft flight windows only looks into the payload bay and the PLB doors are closed at that time!

They could always open the hatch and point the camera back for you ;)

Deserved. I'm on L2 and it's amazing. Going to be syncing it up for deorbit all the way through tomorrow :)

I don't know if Chris wants to do another trailer, but one of the new re-entry camcorder videos on L2 is even more eventful than this one, with sparks flying past the windows and some great crew chatter.

Might do, might do a seperate thread seen as they were key missions (the new videos).

Totally agree, the Endeavour ride is better than the Atlantis video  :cool:  :cool:

I really want to join L2, but I have a question on the videos. Are they in some sort of player box like on a lot of sites now. I hate that as it's buffering and shaky unless you have an amazing connection, or can you actually download them to your hard drive? Please tell me they aren't quicktime too?

Download to your hard drive, play as many times as you want, even after your subscription ends. .WMV files, just like the sample on the first post here. :)

Best way to watch a landing:

-NASA TV on my TV
-Synchronized 115 landing on Picutre-In Picture (lower left hand corner)
-Computer next to me refreshing the flight day thread
NEW MUSIC VIDEO:
STS-125 DREAMS in HD!

I did that too Andrew. I had the STS-115 reentry video running on the big TV all synced up from deorbit burn. Really made it all more real.
I even went a stage further, with the launch from MCC of the nearly went bad STS-93 video from L2, from T-31 to ET sep, during the actual launch, but I am a big space flight junkie :)

There's a trailer for that too (added here now)

The new videos are very cool indeed. You'd think they'd all be the same sort of thing, but each re-entry has its own charms :)

Will re-entry by very different with Orion?
