Neat View of the Shuttle

Posted March 31, 2008

It's Space Week on Siteseeing!   I'm going to show some of the coolest astronomy-related sites on the Web.

NASA has a page full of shuttle-related videos here.  Scroll down to the video entitled "Endeavour Night Launch: Booster View."  It's a unique view of the most recent shuttle launch. 

If you know of some great space-related sites we can show on the news, send me an e-mail!

    Thank you for sharing the websites. I can't wait to show the video to my second graders. They will enjoy viewing this. Keep up the great work on the trafic report.

    That's cool, I don't care who you are.

    It's a shame the mainstream media doesn't provide more coverage of Shuttle, ISS, and alike. Shuttle launches/landings don't even rate interrupting a Soap Opera these days. What a shame.

    Some nice pictures here:

  • charlesboyer Mar 31, 2008 - Bad Astronomy is written by former NASA employee covers space and astronomy topics. His debunking of the so-called Moon Hoax is worth the visit alone, but his "bad space movie physics" section, along with his debunking of "Planet X" and "Nemesis" is very educational. covers all things space, and has more than you could ever possibly imagine. "All encompassing" is the best description of this site. - want to know what's REALLY going on at KSC? Here's the employee's newsletter. - Want to be an astronaut? Here's a list of what NASA is looking for. - Encyclopedia Astronautica. Another all-everything space site.

    Finally, one day soon I will put up my grandfather's papers online again. He retired in 1969 as the Manager of Information Systems and Chief Telemetry officer for KSC and participated in over 150 launches

    Go to for the latest solar activity, as well as a Satellite Flyby link. On that page, you can look up your zip code and see what's coming overhead in the next ten days.

    Florida Today ( is the local paper in Cocoa, Florida. Cocoa is of course the hometown of Kennedy Space Center and the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Florida Today has a blog on it called "The Flame Trench" which is the BEST place to keep up to date with launch information and other KSC/CCAFS news. For the record, KSC is for MANNED launches, and CCAFS is for UNMANNED launches and they are two separate entities. - The Write Stuff is the Orlando Sentinel's blog site for space news and takes a wider and more in-depth view of NASA activities. It is excellent reading.
