Casual Friday — closing out the space shuttle program

With the safe landing of the space shuttle Atlantis, the shuttle program is now officially complete. Two videos seem to be particularly good for commemorating the event.

First, NASA put together a “highlights” video of Atlantis’ last flight (direct link), 17 minutes long but worth the time when you can watch it:

Second, Nature Video put together a clip called “Space Shuttle: The complete missions,” an 8 minute compilation of all 135 shuttle missions that were flown (direct link):

The Guardian has a nice writeup on the second video here, by the way.
