A friend of mine, Ben, shared this with me. It's and inspiring but oddly haunting clip that documents a space shuttle launch from the POV of the boosters. It shows the complete ride from lift off, to blasting straight through the sky, to space entry, ejection from the shuttle, free falling, and slamming back into the ocean. Note the speed in the top right corner. The sound is unearthly. The whole thing is so cool it's scary; and arguably vice versa. Check it out:
Here is the Youtube description of the clip:
"From the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound."
