Image from Shuttle launch

Here's a little bit of beauty for your weekend. The space shuttles are festooned inside and out with on-board cameras. A guy in the UK named Steve Bowbrick took a compilation video of shots from camera mounted on the solid rocket boosters of the shuttle Atlantis, laid a musical soundtrack by The Electroplankton Quartet over it, and the result is a surprisingly poignant and lovely short film.

You can watch the video right here. (There's also a somewhat better quality Quicktime there for download).

Oh, I am sorry, but that screen grab from the video... it looks *so* rude. Somehow the shadows have conspired to give the effect of hair in the gloom, and with the hint of a belly-button and a beltstrap glinting in the light of the explosively enormous protrusion, it does seem to locate the whole thing somewhere in the region between an excited man's thighs and stomach.

Great video, though. If utterly unexpected from that image.
