    HD video of from rocket booster perspective on space shuttle

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    That was awesome. Love to see it on my TV with the stereo cranked way up.

    Once you can feel it shaking your chest, then it's loud enough. I've never been to a launch, but I've seen a booster static-tested in Utah (laid on its side and fired with it's nose braced by the mountain). I was 2 miles from the booster and could see the grass shaking in the sound pressure waves. The closest I've come in Iowa to "feeling the power" like that is when I was standing in the pits at Knoxville as the late models were idling to warm up to motors.

    This, my brain doesnt allow me to wrap my mind around space travel.

    Youre going to sit there and tell me that in the 60's we had the technology to park a plane on the moon after never having been there before.

    I picture a bunch of dudes sitting around going well im pretty sure that if we just drive up to it we can park on it no problem. We will need this much fuel and oh ya we will need these big helmets too. And it worked the first time.

    Obviously it happened but wtf.

    More great video:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2VygftZSCs"]Ascent - Commemorating Shuttle - YouTube[/ame]

    Starts slow, but give it a chance. It has some unbelievable close-up and slow-motion clips, and although the voice over guys are dry (engineers), they're really informative if you're into this stuff.

    Is it possible to get vertigo from watching this at my desk with both feet on the floor?

    Huh. And here I thought that the rocket booster's perspective was something like, "Crap! I'm gonna be outta work soon. Time to update the resume!"
