Produced by FootageVault and using original video from NASA, these clips show some of the major milestones in the development of spaceflight. The Apollo missions used the Saturn V launcher and it's lift off is shown. NASA's most recent launch vehicle is the Space Shuttle. This launcher returns to Earth where it can be re-used and the clip here shows its gliding descent into landing.
