For thirty years, Atlantis took astronauts into the heavens for a total of 33 flights. The orbiting vehicle carried 191 daring adventurers into the sky over its lifespan, logging an astonishing total of 126,000,000 miles and 307 days in space. The camera that captured the breathtaking footage was mounted on one of the shuttle’s solid rocket boosters.

It's a good video, but why did you post the terrible 240p version of it? It's ridiculously fuzzy and the length of the video is only 2:23 but the caption says "From Earth to orbit and back again in just SIX minutes!" so not only is the quality terrible, but there's 4 minutes missing!
An HD quality, annotated version was already posted that's about 10 times better than the 240p version (seriously! It has about 10 times the number of pixels). The video is 8 minutes long so it shows the full flight. It's the first video in the OP of this thread:
The Launch, Flight and Recovery of a Shuttle Solid Rocket Booster (SRB)
So if you liked the fuzzy version, you should love the good version of the video, which we can thank Wrabbit2000 for bringing to ATS.
You quoted my post, but maybe you didn't check the link I cited. That's the exact same version as in the link I already posted, in Wrabbit2000's thread.
