Check Out Discovery’s Launch From An Airplane. Perspective ++

The Space Shuttle Discovery took its final journey off of this this giant blue-skinned rock on Thursday. All us dorks peeped the launch in a variety of manners, but I sure hadn’t seen it like this. NeilMonday on YouTube was in an airplane when he caught the beauty in motion. It’s a different perspective than I’m used to catching these launches at, and I’ll be goddamned it isn’t gorgeous.

Look at that scrapheap of ¬†ingenuity ¬†that us humans cobbled together. Sometimes we’re capable of some pretty impressive shit.
