Hey, remember the Space Shuttle? This highlight reel does!

The Space Shuttle Atlantis embarked on the final voyage of the Space Shuttle program today, and in tribute to the three decades of shuttle launches, NPR put together a nice video commemorating the program with highlights of launches and missions from the past 30 years. Space travel is a given now, even with the future of the program in limbo after decommissioning the Space Shuttles, but videos of launchings are still awe-inspiring.
