Tracking the Space Shuttle in Google Earth

The space shuttle Atlantis is currently in flight on the program’s final voyage after launching from Cape Canaveral on July 8th, and NASA is providing some excellent tools to help track the shuttle in space.

NASA provided a replay of the STS-135 ascent, including  data about the shuttle as it lifted off, and they provided a live tracking file that updates every few seconds so you can follow the exact location of the shuttle. For more information, click here.
