Commemorating the Space Shuttle Program

It’s not often you get to take a ride into space.

Perhaps that will change in the near future with commercial travel to the stars, but until then we can only rely on video representations like this very impressive piece of footage compiled from NASA Space Shuttle missions STS-117 and STS-127: Riding the Booster Up and Down in 400 Seconds.

This incredible piece of work is from the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle soon be released on DVD and BluRay. The movie is from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound.

Make sure you watch it full screen and with the sound turned up. Awesome stuff.
