solid rocket booster camera

the shuttle discovery launched 15 march 2009. here is a video taken from the camera mounted on the solid rocket booster! the beginning shows the separation from the shuttle and the subsequent fall to earth - freaky sounds and great views! the second part shows the view from launch until shuttle separation. cool stuff - very raw!

from universe today.

the sound (or lack thereof) is just . . . well, I don't know what the word is, but I'm sure you know what I mean. And the video is breath-taking!

Fantastic! and many thanks for sharing. I've often wanted to surf around for photos or videos like this but I thought I'd be taken for a spy!!! Thanks.
