I’m feeling nostalgic today so I posted 2 incredible videos.
The first one (top) is called RIDING THE BOOSTER and that’s just what you are doing as multiple cameras fitted to the Solid Rocket Boosters fire you off the pad from different angles. The Shuttle breaks the sound barrier at 1:15, boosters fire away from the shuttle at 1:57 and after the eerie sounds of free fall chutes deploy and you impact the Atlantic Ocean at 7:20…….You will not be disappointed.
The second video is called ASCENT, Commemoration the Space Shuttle and its 45 minutes of extreme slow motion launch pad sequence; 400 frames per second to be exact and this experience WILL open your eyes to never seen before details during a space shuttle launch. The incredible footage starts at 2:35 minutes and gets better from there.
