Shot in real-time, this video provides a good look at the shuttle’s heat-absorbing ceramic tiles, the super-unique and riveting perspective of the Solid Rocket Booster of a space shuttle. And the sounds!
The footage is from the Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay. Sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound. I just wish I knew how enhanced the sound was from the original. It’s such a powerful component of the storytelling.
