Amazing Video of Shuttle Roll

Shuttle Discovery Docks at Space StationDid you see this?

Shuttle Discovery Docks at Space Station
"Discovery docked at the international space station Thursday after performing an unprecedented back flip to allow those aboard the outpost to photograph the shuttle's belly for signs of damage."
Click on the link and watch the video of the "backflip" the shuttle did.


I've seen hundreds of science fiction movies in my life, I've seen aerial dogfights and chases through planet cores and flight round the moons of Nibia and past the Antares Maelstrom, and.... well, nothing Lucas or Spielberg ever dreamed up was ever as beautiful as the Space Shuttle Discovery doing a bellyroll at the ISS.

Because it was real.
