Absolutely mindblowing video shot from the Space Shuttle during launch
Drop whatever you're doing and watch this. NASA has released videos shot from onboard the Space Shuttle's Solid Rocket Boosters in the past, but you've never seen one prepared as masterfully as this.

For one thing, the footage was shot in high definition, so the image is exceptionally clear.But what puts this video head and shoulders above most other rocketcams is the sound. The audio has been remastered by the folks over at Skywalker Sound (yes, that Skywalker Sound), and the final product is nothing short of incredible.

This is absolutely amazing! One of the coolest things I've ever seen. :tu:

Well, I only have the obvious comments... So now 854x480 qualifies at NASA as "ultra high quality". So what would be "high quality"? 640x480? You can't even watch this properly on a 1920p HDTV, let alone if I happen to have a TV set like the one on youtube.com/watch?v=9U7e_quvkPQ with a 7680x4320 resolution, this video will take up a whole 1%(!) of the screen. Ultra high quality? Maybe at NASA.
More to the point, this video points out how small of a piece of dust particle we live on, how unique it is, how vulnerable it is, and how easy it can be to destroy its atmosphere irrevocably with pollution in a few decades. And if you think about how a single species managed to divide it up into political autonomies called countries and suckering free human beings into becoming slave-minded "patriots" just because they happened to be born within the boundaries of one artificially made up country or another, having them move to another land and kill their brothers and sisters there just because they were born elsewhere... I just don't get it. One Planet. One species. One harmonious eco-system. And we're ruining it all because of arrogance and self-induced feelings of superiority over one another and nature itself. That's what I call evolution.

P.S.: Hey, NASA, I don't want to watch this full-screen on one of these: http://www.zdsparts....ges/ibm5151.jpg I want to watch it full-screen on one of these: http://www.intellige...arc-monitor.jpg But thanks for the effort!
