Video: See (and Hear) the Space Shuttle Launch Like Never Before

Michael Interbartolo, a staffer on the Space Shuttle Program, has posted this video of a shuttle launch, with the cameras attached to the Solid Rocket Booster (SRB). Apparently this video will be an bonus feature on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of Ascent: Commemorating Shuttle (which you can watch here).

Watch (and listen) for the splash into the Atlantic in the video, embedded after the jump. [via Discover]
