NASA's Rocket Booster Cam Video

NASA attached four cameras to the outside of the Shuttle, which ran as it launched and headed into low-earth orbit. They released the video from the four cameras as one long clip, showing each view in sequence. Here, our new video editor, Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg synchronized the clips, so you can watch all four feeds at once. (She also sped them up a bit.) We have to enjoy images like this while we can; with the end of the Shuttle program nigh, this is the last American spacecraft launch due for several years. The music's by AKA Media System.

Also, note our slick new video player. Big improvement, right?
