On 8 July 2011, the Space Shuttle embarked on its final mission which also heralded the end of the Shuttle era.
To mark these wonderful spacecraft Nasa produced a DVD called ASCENT, that provided some incredible slow motion views of Shuttle launches.
This video from the Glenn Research Center highlights in stunning, behind-the-scenes imagery the launches of three space shuttle missions: STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124.
This was in DVD resolution 720x480 pixels. Using the latest software , each frame of this video has been analyzed and upscaled to give a crisper, clearer view of this incredible footage.
