Check Out This Insane Video of a Space Shuttle Launch

Okay guys, this might be the coolest thing in the history of ever. As a part of the upcoming release of Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle Blu-Ray/DVD, NASA has released this completely amazing video of a space shuttle launch taken from the perspective of the Solid Rocket Booster.

To up the awesome factor just a little, the video uses authentic sound from the  camera microphones during launch, which has been mastered by Skywalker Sound. Nothing here is faked or added, just 100% real deal space launch-y noise goodness.

Being that it is pretty unlikely that most of us will get to go into space, this is about as good as it gets. Not only is this clip completely incredible, and shot in HD so the picture is outstanding, but this is just a bonus feature on the DVD/Blu-ray release! We can't wait to see whatever nuggets of pure awesome will be on the final release.
