Watch 135 Space Shuttle launches all at once

Hard to believe that last launch was one year ago

On the one-year anniversary of the final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis, we bring you this video, which was making its rounds on the InterWebs over the weekend, of all 135 Space Shuttles launching into space.

The video also includes the Challenger launch, which exploded in 1986 - in fact, a lot of the audio you hear in the video is from that ill-fated launch. Zoom in on column 10, row 2 if you want to see that particular launch (anyone who remembers that day will remember the visuals and audio from that launch).

Impressive bit of video, plus it reminds us how powerful the Space Shuttle launches were, even if we never watched all of them at the time.
