Amazing Video of Space Shuttle Launch

 NASA released this video which is shot from the Solid Rocket Booster perspective up and down with enhanced sound thanks to Ben Burtt’s son and the folks at Skywalker Sound.

Try to let what you’re witnessing sink in. See those numbers flying past in the upper right hand corner? That’s the Shuttle’s airspeed. See that gleam of light against the inky backdrop of space at 2:08 and 3:11? That’s the Shuttle continuing on its flight path into low Earth orbit. Hear the eerie rattling, haunting moans, and weird dinosaur noises? That’s what it sounds like to be a Solid Rocket Booster, falling to Earth from an altitude of 150,000 feet.

Thanks Keith W

    The clarity of the video is one thing, but the audio makes all the difference.
