And celebrating the anniversary of the first Shuttle mission in 1981.

thats-the-way-it-was:

April 12, 1981: STS-1 Columbia, the first Space Shuttle, is launched at Cape Kennedy, Florida.

Columbia orbited Earth 37 times during it’s 54.5-hour mission carrying a two man crew - mission commander John  W. Young and pilot Robert L. Crippen.  The ultimate launch date of STS-1 fell on the 20th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s Vostok 1, the first manned spaceflight.

IMAX cameras filmed the launch, landing, and mission control during the flight, for the 1982 film entitled Hail Columbia!

This is an absolutely incredible photograph! I’d love to know how it was taken, and perhaps I can try to take one myself similar to this at an upcoming launch.
