Reminds me of ya'll know what
Uh - I presume you are referring to that little incident back in 2001, September 11 ?
Indeed - a growing number of aspects related to the Space Shuttle are reminiscent of 9/11. Let me submit a few more, at this point. As you know, the 9/11 imagery is in 'a class of its own', in the sense that it contains a series of unique and recurring oddities, apparent rendering glitches and assorted photographic aberrations. Many of these unique features are to be found in the Space Shuttle imagery as well. For instance:
1. FANCIFUL CHROMATICS
This sort of 'color psychedelia' is reminiscent of the 9/11 imagery:
2. "PUZZLING PIXELCRASHES"
This sort of pixel disasters are reminiscent of the 9/11 imagery (jettisoned main tank 'breaks up' in mid-air):

Here is a similar 'phenomena' to be found in the 9/11 imagery:
3. INEXPLICABLE ARTIFACTS
The only possible explanation for this 'string' hanging under the shuttle is: 'animation graphics gone wrong':
4. ASSORTED MYSTERIES AND SILLINESS
-Mystery wide black object at left running up the runway - stopping and turning thin
-Silly drag chute reflection in (dry) tarmac
-Silly seagull flapping around over the scene (flying away at supersonic speed)

( To be sure: Plenty of silly birds on 9/11... ):
They just love those birds - for a reason, I guess: they add that little touch of 'reality' to their lifeless animations - and you know, at least they can FLY convincingly - in the real world, that is. However, we also know they can punch holes in aircraft - but see, NASA has alll those dozens of expendable shuttles and astronaughts - so they just don't give a bird's sh*t about birds:
5. RESHUFFLED/REMIXED STOCK/ANIMATION SEGMENTS/TEMPLATES
It would appear that all the imagery of the many Shuttle launches were put together by simply remixing/reshuffling a series of stock/template shots. I have already pointed out a few clues as to this hypothesis - and more time will be needed to determine this in a comprehensive manner. Stay tuned.
