BLAST OFF!

NASA releases hi-def footage from cameras mounted on Space Shuttle booster rockets in advance its DVD/Blueray film, Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle.

This video follows a shuttle as it blasts off, enters space at almost three thousand miles per hour, then releases its booster rockets and follows those rockets’ descent back to a splashy ocean landing.

Sound mixing and enhancement is done by Skywalker Sound.

Run Time - ~8:30 very worthwhile minutes.
