A couple more STS-125 videos

There wasn't any live video of the release, but this was sent down from the shuttle and posted on the internet today. Notice when they give the shuttle 10 burns on the rockets to move the shuttle down. The Hubble then drifts right over the top windows of the shuttle.

...and here are the views that I never get tired of. The SRB cameras! I think these are some of the clearest videos I've see yet of this. I think they stuck HD cameras all over the place now. They also had a 3D IMAX camera on board for a future movie.
Notice the flex in the wings when the SRBs light, see how fast the shuttle passes those high clouds, and the clarity of the view of the shuttle pulling away. Very cool.
