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

Share

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). The big deal here is the sound–there was some assistance from Skywalker Sound, the company that provides the sound for George Lucas’s movies. Watch (and listen) for the splash into the Atlantic in the video, embedded after the jump. [via Discover]
