Space Shuttle Launch Time Lapse
By Chris Hardwick on May 22, 2010
A couple of Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs cameras, six weeks, and a hundred hours of footage = AMAZINGNESS. It’s hard to watch when they hoist it up with cables and not think, “Oh yeah, they’re gonna drop that.”
If you’re lucky enough to get the quick ad at the beginning extolling the virtues of Arkansas, just pretend that it’s the place the shuttle is going. Like you have to take a spacecraft to get to it or something. I lived in Jonesboro for a time when I was a kid, and believe me when I tell you that pretending that it’s extraterrestrial not only explains a lot but also helps make that place a little less, well, Arkansas-y.
