Booster loose

Stunning footage from one of the pair of Shuttle booster rockets as it disengages and falls to earth. The sound was captured using a contact mic - remember in space nobody can hear you scream, right kids? And the sometimes ethereal, sometimes violent sounds captured as the booster hits the atmosphere are great.

The whole sequence has an air of Kubrick at his best... stick around for the water impact, sheer poetry.
