Space Shuttle Launch from Air Canada Plane

The above video surfaced on Gizmodo and is alleged to have been shot by a passenger on an Air Canada flight during a Space Shuttle launch. There’s no reason to believe that it’s fake, and ignoring the commentary on the video, it’s pretty cool. The speed of the Shuttle as it rises is phenomenal. According to NASA, the Space Shuttle does zero to 17,000 mph (27,400kmh) in 8.5 minutes
