It's the Friday video post! All 135 Space Shuttle launches at the same time!

This is truly extraordinary. All 135 NASA Space Shuttle launches at the same time.

Strangely, it doesn't look like that many, but think about what has been achieved (the Hubble telescope and the International Space Station for starters).

Interestingly, whoever put this together didn't shy away from including the doomed Challenger launch. And why shouldn't they? It's good to be reminded that spaceflight is hugely risky and space an unrelentingly dangerous place to work.
