A handy Google add-on that follows the path of the shuttle in real-time.

Select the link and click on "open". Google Earth, which must be already installed, will run and the shuttle's route will be displayed and tracked live.

It's impressive that we can watch this but I always end getting bored after a few minutes.

Maybe if they added a soundtrack or something it would be better.

To overcome this select "manual control". This option can be found in the Places pane (Temporary Places) on the left side of Google Earth.

Great find, very cool to watch, I checked out the NASA feed also, they reported no more near object warnings for the Shuttle.

I wish this thing had an actual shuttle icon on the orbit path
