Alert reader Michael sent me this swell year-old video taken from a booster rocket carrying the space shuttle into space. Be sure to watch for when the booster goes supersonic, separates from the shuttle, and then plunges slowly into the sea.
An added bonus is that the sound is real and there’s a speedometer readout.
The website for this project, which mentions an unreleased DVD, is here, and this is the caption for the video:
From the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay by NASA/Glenn a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound. The sound is all from the camera microphones and not fake or replaced with foley artist sound. The Skywalker sound folks just helped bring it out and make it more audible.
