First Space Shuttle Flight – STS-1 [FULL MISSION]

First Space Shuttle Flight - STS-1 [FULL MISSION]

First Space Shuttle Flight

Space Shuttle First Mission PatchI remember the First Space Shuttle Flight as if it were yesterday! I was just a 13 year old kid at the time and watched in awe as the Space Shuttle Columbia lifted off from Launch Pad 39A on April 12, 1981 at 7:00:03 a.m. EST. It was a spectacle for all to see and a flight for the ages!

This was the very first time that a reusable spacecraft would be launched into orbit so there was a lot of anticipation in the air. The Space Shuttle Program brought enthusiasm back to NASA and the United States NOT seen since the days of the “LEGENDARY” Apollo Program. All eyes were on Columbia on this very special day.

First Space Shuttle Flight – The Greatest Test Flight – STS-1 (Full Mission 03)

You can relive this incredible moment in NASA history by watching the AWESOME documentary video above. STS-1 was the very first orbital spaceflight of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program. John Young and Robert Crippen were hand picked to fly the first Shuttle mission in March 1978 and what a flight it was. One for the record books for sure!

The Space Shuttle Columbia launched into history on April 12, 1981 from the Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s Space Coast and safely landed back on Earth at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California on April 14, 1981. The flight duration was 54.5 hours and the Columbia orbited the Earth 36 times.

The Space Shuttle Program

The Space Shuttle Program also known by it’s official name, the Space Transportation System (STS) was the fourth human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). NASA’s Space Shuttle Program flew low Earth orbit (LEO) missions from 1981 to 2011.

Schema Space Shuttle Orbiter

There were a total of 133 successful missions with 2 missions ending in catastrophic failure. The first disaster happened on January 28, 1986 which was STS-51-L. The Space Shuttle Columbia exploded just 73 seconds after lift-off killing all 7 astronauts on board including what would’ve been the first civilian in space teacher Christa McAuliffe.

This tragedy shook the confidence of an entire nation and shocked the World as we all looked on the fateful day. NASA immediately started investigating what went wrong. They determined that the O rings which are placed in between the each section of the solid rocket booster failed due to cold weather conditions.

The Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion

It wasn’t long after the Rogers Commission Report that NASA’s Space Shuttle Program was up and running again. Sadly, there would be another tragedy that would rock the Space Shuttle Program again just 17 years later. The Space Shuttle Columbia was lost during re-entry approximately 16 minutes before its expected landing at Kennedy Space Center, STS-107, February 1, 2003. The 7 person crew was lost.

Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster

May these 14 brave souls rest in peace forever. Here’s a quote from President Reagan’s speech on January 28, 1986. I think it’s fitting for all those lost in our never ending quest to reach for the stars!

“The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.”

President Ronald Reagan, February 1, 1986

Names Of Space Shuttles

There were a total of six Space Shuttles but five actually flew in space. The first Space Shuttle was the Enterprise which was named after the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) (Star Trek starship) and flew only one time on August 12, 1977. She was launched from the top of a specially modified Boeing 747. This was the “OFFICIAL” first flight and it went flawlessly as she glided back to Earth for a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Name Of Space Shuttles

The Names Of Space Shuttles that actually flew in space are the Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour. These Space Shuttle’s were only launched from Kennedy Space Center and landed at Edwards Air Force Base during the early days of the Space Shuttle Program. They would eventually land at Kennedy Space Center depending on weather conditions at the space center.

The Space Shuttle Program flew from 1981 thru 2011 and cost an estimated $196 billion (2011). The Space Shuttle Fleet flew way longer than they were designed to fly. As the years went on the cost to maintain the Space Shuttle Fleet was astronomical and a determining factor when it came time to finally retire the Space Shuttle Program.

Space Shuttle Orbiter

Even though there were two catastrophic missions that cost the lives of 14 brave souls. The Space Shuttle Program was a HUGE technological success. Up until the Challenger disaster in 1986. People around the World considered space flight routine. Unfortunately, space travel is extremely dangerous as we were all reminded of on that fateful day.

Space Shuttle Flight Controls

The Space Shuttle Flight Controls are still the most complicated system ever built by man. In fact, the Space Shuttle could not be flown without the help of it’s on board computer system which was responsible for monitoring all flight system and flew the Space Shuttle back to Earth during re-entry through the atmosphere.

Space Shuttle Endeavour Cockpit

The pilot in command would take control on final approach and gently land the Space Shuttle on the runway. The Space Shuttle is definitely man’s greatest accomplishment! Next to landing a man on the Moon of course but the Space Shuttle is by far the most complicated piece on machinery ever created.

As you can see in the Space Shuttle’s Cockpit above. There are hundreds of switches and knobs along with digital displays that make flying the Space Shuttle an absolute dream for Astronauts. Flying the Space Shuttle is nothing like flying an airplane. It’s NOT even close!

Space Shuttle Cockpit

Astronauts spend countless hours inside flight simulators preparing for every kind of disaster conceivable and whatever else NASA can conjure up. As the Space Shuttle Program matured over the decades so did technology. The first all glass cockpit was fitted in the Space Shuttle Atlantis which was a huge leap in technology at the time.

All the magic happens inside the cockpit of the Space Shuttle and during re-entry and Landing the Commander begins the de-orbit burn by firing the orbiter’s engines to slow its speed and take it out of orbit. As soon as the Space Shuttle is about 4 minutes from touchdown the Commander will take over for the final approach.

NASA Space Shuttle’s Final Voyage of Atlantis – STS-135 (Full Final Mission)

Everything comes to an end sometime and that’s exactly what happened when the Space Shuttle Atlantic blasted off for the final time on July 8, 2011. Unfortunately, there was NOT a replacement vehicle ready and U.S. Astronauts would have to rely on Russia for a ride to the International Space Station and still do to this very day.

The Orion spacecraft was slated to replace the aging Space Shuttle Program but was abruptly cancelled for political reasons. The good news is that Orion is back in business and has already been test flown and has performed flawlessly so far and scheduled for man flight in the very near future.

Fly The Space Shuttle Atlantis 2019

As a tribute to the Space Shuttle Program. Watch the documentary above and relive every moment of the Space Shuttle Atlantis’s final flight into the history books as she closes another chapter in human space flight. It was a sad day indeed but a story that will not end with the final flight of the Space Shuttle.

Are UFO’s Real? The Truth [UNSEALED!]

Are UFO's Real? The Truth [UNSEALED!]

Are UFO’s Real?

Gray ExtraterrestrialThere are those who believe that UFO’s are real and over the many decades. Lots of compelling evidence have been accumulated for the whole World to see. Thanks to the internet, everything you ever wanted to know about UFO’s and Extraterrestrials are just a click away.

An unidentified flying object (UFO) is an object in the sky that can not be identified. The term UFO comes from another famous term coined in the 1950’s, Flying Saucer. The term UFO is widely used for reported sightings of extraterrestrial spacecraft.

Turkey UFO 👽 Aliens Caught on Tape Real Footage 👽 Clearest UFO Footage Ever Alien Occupants Visible

The video you are about to see is the BEST evidence ever caught on film in my opinion. I want to make one thing clear! Do your own research on this particular incident. The film was sent to the University of Istanbul and confirmed by some of the World’s top scientists to be AUTHENTIC! There is plenty of information available online for you to make your own judgement.

This incredible video was filmed on June 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM off the coast of Turkey. What I find absolutely AMAZING is NOT the UFO itself but what seems to be Aliens inside the spacecraft. If you look carefully at the video you’ll see what appears to be 2 grey Aliens inside the spacecraft. There is even body movement which can clearly be seen and will be pointed out in the film.

Dr. Roger Leir is the author of “Aliens and the Scalpel,” and one of the worlds leading authorities in physical evidence research involving UFO’s and physiological and biological aspects of the abduction phenomenon. Listen carefully as he narrates the short video presentation. Sit back and enjoy the show! Please let me know in the comments below if you think this is real or not. Remember, YOU are the “ULTIMATE” judge and jury!

Watch Incredible UFO Videos!

You just watched one of the most incredible UFO Videos you’ll find anywhere online or anywhere else for that matter. I hope you enjoyed the short video presentation as much as I did. What do you think? Is this video enough to convince you that UFO’s are real? You be the judge and make sure you share your thoughts below.

UFO Inside View

I happen to think that this is the BEST evidence to date and believe this AWESOME footage is absolutely 100% real. That’s just my opinion and my opinion alone because I happen to have an open mind when it comes to the possibility of Extraterrestrial life. Stop and think about this mind-blowing fact I’m about to reveal to you for a moment.

Did you know? More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to have died out. That is an unbelievable percentage that you really have to think about for a moment because that astronomical statistic alone is hard to comprehend considering the billions of different species alive on our planet today.

UFO Cockpit

Can you imagine the billions of life forms that once existed? We already know about Neanderthals and Dinosaurs for example but there is so much we don’t know. Now, consider the vastness of space and trillions of galaxies and planets. It’s mathematically impossible for life NOT to exist beyond our solar system. Like I said earlier, look at the diversity of life on this planet alone. Chances are, ‘We Are Not Alone!”. Whether or NOT Aliens have visited Earth is debatable but most likely probable. There is considerable archaeological evidence that supports this theory.

Alien Interview Part 1 👽 The Secrets of Universe Are Shockingly Revealed 👽 Project Blue Book

You can not talk about UFO’s without Alien life and Area 51 entering into conversation. All three subjects are forever intertwined with each other and cannot be separated from the topic at hand. In order to learn the true origin of UFO’s. You have to understand how Aliens and Area 51 could be directly linked to the UFO phenomena.

Area 51 is a top secret military base in the Nevada desert used for testing top secret aircraft. This is where the F-117 Stealth Fighter was devoloped and kept out of the public eye for nearly two decades before it was revealed during the 1991 Gulf War. If they can keep the F-117 secret for that long. Just imagine what they’re flying there today!

Area 51

What you are about to see in an Alien interview inside Area 51 in 1964. This “SHOCKING” video is from the Top Secret files of Project Blue Book which was an Air Force program designated with the task to investigate UFO reports. The program was retired in 1969 but this AMAZING video surfaced just a few years ago and has been controversial ever since.

I have watched this video several times and can’t say that if it’s real or not. I do have to admit that it is pretty convincing and what this Alien has to say makes a lot of sense. Please watch this video for yourself and decide if you think this is a real Alien interview or not. The Alien in the video was named ‘EBE-3’ and was held captive for 5 days. Subject disappeared from Government records on the date of this event.

Special Note: [‘EBE-3’ Remarkably Resembles The Aliens In The Turkey UFO Video Above] Do you think this is a coincidence or NOT?

The Most Famous UFO Pictures!

You are looking at one of the MOST FAMOUS UFO Pictures of all-time! This remarkable photo was taken in the late evening of February 24 into the early morning hours of February 25, 1942, over Los Angeles, California. During this time a rumored enemy attack and subsequent anti-aircraft artillery barrage went on for several hours.

Battle Of Los Angeles

The name of the photo above is called “The Battle of Los Angeles”, also known as “The Great Los Angeles Air Raid”. This historic event unfolded only 2 months after the devastating Pearl Harbor attack which took place December 7, 1941. At that time, the United States was in a state of war with the Empire of Japan and thought this UFO was a Japanese Air-raid. Not one artillery shell brought down this unknown object!

The two famous UFO Pictures below are known as the McMinnville UFO photographs and were taken on a farm near McMinnville, Oregon, United States, in 1950. These are probably the most published photos UFO Pictures of all-time because the photos were reprinted in Life magazine and in newspapers across the nation and are often considered to be among the most famous ever taken of a UFO.

Famous UFO Sightings

These are the two photos I chose because they are the MOST FAMOUS UFO Pictures of all-time and have been re-published countless times over the decades. Whether these photos are real or not is debatable. However, both of these photos have been meticulously analyzed by experts and have never been debunked to this very day. You be the judge and decide for yourself!

UFOs & AREA 51 🛸 Secrets Of The Black World 🛸 FEATURE FILM

If you were to drive along State Route 375, the “Extraterrestrial Highway”, south of Rachel, Nevada. You will eventually drive right up to Area 51’s front gate. Getting inside the secret military base is a whole other story. That’s because there’s top secret aircraft testing going on and rumored to be UFO’s and other exotic technologies. Extraterrestrials have long been rumored to be on the base as well.

In 2005, the CIA finally publicly acknowledged the existence of the Area 51 for the first time ever, declassifying documents detailing the history and purpose of Area 51. Although some documents were declassified, you can bet the house that no real facts about Area 51 and the activities going on inside were included in the documents.


However, what we do know is the base’s current primary purpose is publicly unknown. Based on historical evidence, we do know that it most likely supports the development and testing of weapons systems and experimental aircraft also known as (Black Projects). We may never know what really goes on inside Area 51 but what ever it is going on is probably out of this world!

Did I prove that Aliens and UFO’s exist in this report? OF COURSE NOT! What I did do is provide some of the best video and photographic evidence I could find during my research. It’s up to you to do your own research and come to your own conclusions. If anything, I hope that you do your own research with an open mind. After all, the truth is right in front of you. You just have to look for it!
