I recently bought myself a time-lapse remote control for my Camera, because I – as you might have guessed it – want to do some time-lapse projects.
Here I think is one that sets the bench mark literally sky high.
Nasa documented one of their last space shuttle launches using that technique. All I can say is: Wow!
Shame they didnt put any music on it though as it would have made an even bigger impact I think.
