Tribute to the Space Shuttle from the European astronauts
From STS-9 in 1983 to STS-134 in last May
Space Shuttle is perhaps the most complex technological system ever
built. In 30 years, it has flown 135 times and helped humankind to
dispatch and partially even return many satellites and deep-space
probes, to build the International Space Station and to conduct
out-of-this-world science. The Shuttle has transported also 24 European
astronauts to Earth orbit on 25 missions.
This video highlights these flights with European flavour - from STS-9 in 1983 to STS-134 in last May.
