The Last Shuttle Project
A team of professional photographers and cinematographers documenting the end of the Space Shuttle program for museums
After 30 years of space flight NASA’s Space Shuttle Program is coming to an end. With more than 1 million parts, the Space shuttle is the most complex device built to date. This American achievement has enhanced people’s lives the world over including achievements in medicine, technology, engineering, science, mathematics and more.
The San Diego Air & Space museum has teamed up with LightSpeed Media to document the end of the era in NASA’s and America’s history. This is a rare and momentous opportunity to capture and chronicle, in a dramatically detailed and unique fashion, the attributes of this complex machine; as well as the scientists, engineers and team members who’ve designed, constructed, maintained and prepared a one-of-a-kind shuttle fleet through the program’s history.
The goal is to capture the rich media content, which will be offered to museums, educational entities and other end users. These immersive media formats include technologies such as HD, 3D, 360VR, Infra Red, HDR and Full Spectrum photography and video imagery as well as proprietary multi-angle media captures showing the “Last Shuttle” launch, NASA space shuttle procedures, and interviews with those who have been involved with the Shuttle’s Journey over the years, in ways never before documented.
The content, which will be woven into the rich history of NASA and America, will be purposed for use by museums through out the country.
