Came across this by chance today, very neat to actually watch the shuttle come down from orbit to landing, and it all happens in just under 7minutes.

I have never had the chance to view anything like this before, and after doing a search on ATS it would seem no video of this sort has been posted in the past.

Hope everyone enjoys it, I sure did. (but I'm a space nut

Neat huh?

That's awesome! - I love the way they are having fun on the way in, for some reason I would of thought it would be about the most serious landing you could make, they are so cool and everyday about it.

Shame the re-entry bit was not on there though, that's the tense bit.

Awesome indeed.

And it answers the question I had in another thread, thanks for that.

That's a pretty amazing landing. They seem calm about the whole ordeal. It must take a whole hell of a lot of practice to get such a perfect landing from way up above the planet.

They're probably familiar with the situation but I'd be a nervous wreck trying to get it in line with runway!

Thats amazing to watch,it must takes years of practice to be able to land like that.
he did seem very calm about it as well..calm under pressure is the key,you can't panic or it's all over

That was awesome, thanks for sharing. I had a big grin on my face all the way through watching that

Heard the pilot referred to as "Taco" during the chatter, I'm guessing this is him...
