Space Shuttle Launch Audio - play LOUD (no music) HD 1080p

  • Published on Apr 27, 2011
  • - - Created through FAIR USE for educational purposes - - STS-121
    You need a sound system with a lot of power and a great sub (turned up to house shaking level) to get the right effect of this video. I made this for all the people who dreamed of seeing a launch in person but were never able to make the trip themselves.
    Using dozens of different video sources and countless audio versions of Shuttle launches I mixed this little clip together to mimic as close an experience to the real thing as I could. I know that the exact sequence of countdown events is somewhat compressed and not time-accurate but I was going more for the 'feel' of a high energy launch experience rather than a technical documentary. Throttle Up and SRB Separation are sounds as might be heard from onboard acoustic transducers picking up resonant vibration in the vehicle's structure.
    Please take care not to damage your sound equipment during playback. I did not do anything to boost the low frequency roar of the Shuttle during liftoff but the SRB and SSME thrust noise may be taxing to even high quality sub-woofers and speaker cones if played too loud.
    For those who sit through the last few frames you can catch a glimpse of my home theater system I built a couple of years ago. This video really is best viewed at 165 inches or better!

    1) Pause video at 1:00, set volume 25%
    2) Open new tab and search "For the damaged coda" song by blonde redhead, volume 100%
    3) Start both at the same time
    4) Watch as humans accomplish a big step in history

    In the late 1960's we left Myrtle Beach, SC and headed for Florida to see an Apollo mission launch. I was too young to drive, but I remember ending up at Cocoa Beach. We drove down the day before (the launch) thinking we could find a place to stay -- we were wrong. We ended up parked on the side of the road for the night. The next morning, we got well enough in position to watch the takeoff. It was close enough to see, but far enough out to keep everyone relatively safe. We saw the flume when the engines ignited, but the shock wave was delayed. It was the most exciting thing I had ever experienced. Later, in the 1980's, we went back to Florida for a Shuttle launch. The main thing I remember being different, was the (apparently) more powerful engines. At ignition time, there are explosive bolts holding the craft in place. When these bolts break she lifts off pronto. The shuttle engines made a lot more noise also. The space shuttle launch would slow down below full power right before going supersonic. The "go at throttle up" was the command to go +full throttle. That's when you heard two sonic booms. When Apollo launched, the TV cameras lost the image much quicker than when an STS would launch. If you didn't believe in God, you would have after watching one of these birds head for the sky.

    How come we can hear the boosters separation (at 3:00), and exactly at the precise moment of detonation? The shuttle is many miles above ground and is traveling faster than the speed of sound. The sound recorder could not have been located on the shuttle itself since you can hear the claps from the crowd. Unless two or more soundtracks were mixed together.

    Soo cool.. then they get into "upper earth's orbit" and fly around a bit.... good luck crossing the Van Allan Belt with that bad boy, but good show y'all.. fooled millions... and only cost $100 million tax payer dollars... cheer, fools, cheer. check out the landing now.. just a fancy jet coming down from a nice high flight around with fish-eye lenses...

    Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the launch... such an awesome thing!
    I also would like to share with you something that I was able to visualize while watching this. I was worrying about something and it was a heavy care. I saw this video for the first time when I was trying to cast my cares over on the Lord. He instructed me to watch this video and to visualize that the space shuttle launch was like my launch the care out of my soul realm (mind, will and emotions) like the space shuttle was launch out of the earth realm.
    It became a very emotional unique experience especially when I heard negative return at the end of the video. I don't know what it means where the space shuttle is concern but I knew what it meant where the cares was concern. "Negative Return" = "the care never to return again".
    I would like to use this video as a means to share this Biblical truth to do I go about getting permission? Thanks again for your uploading this and making it available as it is a life changing moment to watch and see the awesomeness of it all especially when coupled with casting your cares over on the Lord.

    Have you ever wondered why in the World has technology stagnated to such a degree that we are still driving around in cars based on Technology invented in 1859, even though the giant leap between the first airplane and the first Jet Plane is only 36 years! Why, after "going to the moon" in the 60s, do we STILL not have Space tourism (its been 50 years), why were all the Astronauts so depressed at their first press conference after coming back from our "first visit" to the moon? Why did Armstrong not "remember" if he saw stars or not from the moon at that Press conference? Why does the earth look so small in the moon photos when its 6 times bigger than the moon? No one has been able to answer these questions that I can tell, and for even asking these questions people are labelled unfairly.

      They are thruster covers installed on the ground to keep debris and water out. Their doing exactly what their suppose to, vibrate open at launch and rip away.
