News of the Nifty: A Day in the Life of a Space Shuttle Rocket Booster
Ever wonder what it was like to be a rocket booster for the Space Shuttle? Well, apparently NASA put some darn sturdy little cameras on them for a few flights and compiled that into a video. This is footage (with sound!) of a Shuttle lift off, rocket booster separation and splashdown, from the boosters' perspective. Amazing and beautiful.

The exact dose of wonder I needed today:) At one point it sounds like breathing underwater.

There's one bit as it's hitting atmosphere that sounds like whale song. :-)

That too!! I am glad it wasn't just me hearing it that way.
