For more than 50 years NASA and the US Space Program
have been exploring the heavens and teaching us more about

As the Space Shuttle program comes to a close we have the
unique opportunity to reflect on the impact it has made in
our lives, and the immeasurable contributions it has made to
mankind as a whole.
The Last Space Shuttle Project was created to preserve the lessons we have learned from this program in order to present them to the generations yet to come.
We are documenting every stage of NASA’s final shuttle preparations, and follow the process through to the launch, mission, and the eventual retirement of each of the shuttles.
It is our hope that by sharing images of the behind-the-scenes efforts that made each one of the missions possible, the public will gain a greater understanding of the complexity of the undertaking and the dedication of the people involved.
We have been documenting every stage of NASA’s final shuttle preparations, and have followed the process from the launch, mission, and now to the eventual retirement of each of the shuttles.
We intend to provide an immersive, innovative experience
utilizing 3D and time-lapse photography. The shuttle
documentation we create will be displayed in museums,
educational settings and various outlets through out the world.
This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell the
shuttle story and preserve its history in a way that’s never
been done before.
