Final launch of Endeavour - videos.

Once the boosters are back and all cameras are collected, it's always fun to see these videos of the launch highlights.  Look for the thermal image of the ET getting filled, never seen that before!

...and here is another view never seen before.  This was made from 6 cameras shooting at 250 frames per second, for a total of over 20,000 images combined for this video.   Almost an HDR effect, but you can really see some nice details in the SRB exhaust in this.  But still, it can't give any idea of how bright these are.  I don't think a photo will ever appear that can give an idea of how bright the launch is, just those of us who have seen it in person will ever know!
