The STS-132 space shuttle Atlantis final launch

I was lucky enough to be able to make a trip to see the final launch of space shuttle Atlantis. The shuttle takes off in cape Canaveral near the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The space center sold all of their 9000 tickets in 30 minutes. Traffic leaving the space center was an extra 2 hours even though most people spent more time at Kennedy space center. There were people waiting for the launch with tripod cameras and beach chairs as early as 9am for the 2pm launch. This video was taken with my HD Flipcam.
