A Ride to Space & Back: video from a booster engine

Mar 28, 2012 18 Comments by

In this mesmerizing video, experience a ride to space and back as cameras on the Space Shuttle’s booster engines capture the experience–from blastoff to splashdown. This fantastic footage is part of the upcoming DVD, “Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle.” All of the sounds are real, and seeing the Earth from the point of view of the booster engine in space is amazing. I know you’ll enjoy this video pick as much as I did.

    All I had to say is “WOW!!!” Do they actually pick up these engines and use them over again?
