The Last Space Shuttle Launch

8 July 2011.  Is it really that long ago, already, that the last space shuttle launch happened?  Here to remind us of what we are missing these days is some incredible footage of STS-135 by Bill Bennett who was invited by Arri and NASA to record this final launch for posterity.  The camera, an Alexa rolling at 120fps was just a 1,000 feet from the Launchpad – and triggered remotely. The result? Is there a one word superlative for awesome?
