As long as they take Phil Collins with them.

Saw that live on MSNBC. Very cool.

Rock-N-Roll! My mom woke me from my toddler slumber to watch NASA's original fake moon landing...and through these many years, everytime I hear mission control, the hair still stands up on the back of my neck!

Now that was awesome.

There's more rocketcams archived at SpaceFlightNow in the Features section.

The short version of the STS-104 night landing is good too; the good part starts after the initial infrared tracking and the shot of the landing strip from the cockpit starts.​l

BTW Scooter, the shuttle launches are fake too. The actual orbiter is only about 23" high and uses Estes B series engines. An extremely powerful series of corbonorite directed light sources and zedon mirrors actually projects the image onto the balsa mobile launch platform. Special NASA aircraft equipped with Audiobahn Subs provide the rumbling sound effect.

I sure miss those Calvin and Hobbes strips where Calvin's dad would explain technical stuff to him.

At last, a good use for one of those X10 cams! I wonder if they'll be deploying massive 300m banner advertisements in space???

Woah...that rox0red. Wish someday they give us the opportunity to hitch a lift in a space suit strapped to the side of a rocket so we can get a first-person view of the trip off the planet.

QuiK_42o: heheh, yeah, unfourtunitly I doubt you'd survive, and try to imagine re-entry.

Very nice and kudos to the site for offering a decent choice of video formats.
