Space Shuttle Discovery STS-133

Liftoff of Shuttle Discovery on Feb 24th, 2011. This was taken with a Canon 5D Mark II mounted near the launch pad. The camera is activated with a sound trigger. The roar of the engine during liftoff tells the camera to start taking video or photos.


This is actually one frame of a stereo video camera rig that we had in the field. The images created during this launch are for the Last Shuttle Project. For more information on our project, please visit our website:
