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

- - 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!

Very nice work. Thanks for putting this together and uploading. But the shuttle actually sounds a bit puny compared to the high quality (but mono) recording James Cottle made during the Saturn V launch of Apollo 11. Basso profundo!

Trump just boosted the military's budget by $54 billion. NASA is able to do stuff like this on $18 billion. They're so under-funded

I am pretty upset that we stopped funding space travel. But I predict that when 3rd part space explorations start happening and they end up on Mars and doing their plans on Mars with colonization and all of that, I think NASA will have to be funded again at that point to help out with research/political stuff for Mars. As well as the fact that there will be huge legislation and land issues with colonizing Mars. But I believe we can send someone up there before 2100. I'm also happy though because I get to say that I remember the discovery space shuttle missions and remember what it was like to watch a rocket ship fly into space. Today's kids will never get to experience that
