STS-129 HD Launch Universe Sandbox 2 - Theia Collision 1 day ago   11:32

Space shuttle Atlantis and its six-member crew began an 11-day delivery flight to the International Space Station on Monday with a 2:28 p.m. EST launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The shuttle will transport spare hardware to the outpost and return a station crew member who spent more than two months in space.

Atlantis is carrying about 30,000 pounds of replacement parts for systems that provide power to the station, keep it from overheating, and maintain a proper orientation in space. The large equipment can best be transported using the shuttle's unique capabilities.

Universe Sandbox 2 - Theia Collision STS-129 HD Launch 1 day ago   02:30

Hello and welcome back to another video!

Please take note, the collision is not meant to be historically realistic in terms of position of either planets, the effects of the collision, and the speed of Theia. The only factor meant to be true is the size of Earth and Theia.
