This is a cockpit video from a following fighter jet, escorting Endeavour on her last flight towards her resting place in California.

Stunning footage worthy of a magnificient spacecraft.

Dammit, someone is cutting onions in here again.

Yet more myopic politicians making decisions without proper thought or consideration...NASA should have looked for International support to keep the Shuttles flying, even if that meant building a couple of new ones using new technology..

Was lucky enough to watch a night launch some years back, will dig out the pictures and scan them in...they were taken on 35mm film as CCD's were not the realm of the public in the early 1990's.

it's sad to think that these amazing machines will never fly again, my earliest memory of the shuttle was challanger.

they say it was cost but i believe it was not only cost is was the loss of equipment and the great mavericks they lost along the way that brought the shuttle to an end, just as it did the apollo missions.

nasa has to find new meaning and fast, imagine where the world would be today without their hard work and sacrifice.

personally i think nasa should become one with all other agencies around the world, one internatonal effort, one agency who's mission goals should be science, exploration & the expansion of the human race.

imagine where we could go and what we could do if the cost was shared between all.

While we are on the topic of Shuttle videos, has anyone seen Adam Rutherfords "All Missions" video?

I actually still can't watch through it without tearing up... o.O
