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!

2:15. You can see the shuttle beginning to break the sound barrier as it hits 750 mph.

Author LiamCoasterFan ! ( ago)
The top speed for this rocket is about 17,500 mph. It could travel around Earth in 90 minutes. It is a very hypersonic vehicle.

Wait, so is it in space by the end of the video? For sure it looks like it leveled out and didn't continue going vertical. Maybe it's easier to go into space at an angle.

For something designed in the 70's my god that is a beautiful mixture of man and machine at it's most fine of points. Australian here, what happened America? you where once the land of dreams, of hope, of scientific achievement at its best. Private exploration is great, and SpaceX is doing wonders, but at one point, you guys nearly united humanity. Sure it was backed by money, oil money some will say, but come on it was for the greater good back then. You guys really believed in a better world for all, what happened?

Imagine how it must feel for the astronauts, when they have to issue the response: "Roger, go at throttle up". There must be this short period where time just stands still in that cockpit. I know I feel emotional, so I refuse to believe they can ignore it themselves.

poor audio - a lot of clipping and no subwoofer frequencies. Be wary if you're playing on a decent sound system.

Why did some people say that the space shuttle launches are fake when people saw the launch in person and/or record it.

Author Devonian ( ago)
So long, good riddance, now can we have some real Rockets back in service please??

Author Ashleigh Parker ( ago)
See THIS is why NASA's budget cuts in previous years is such a tragedy. We need this technology if we ever hope to get anywhere beyond Earth. The space program could not only bring up knowledge, but resources, more living space, energy - the possibilities are endless. I hope Trump does well by the space program and gives it some more funding.

Its funny how all the official launches ended in explosions and this launch looks computer generated. I mean, really? And then the video faded at the point where the shuttles is suppose to break the earth atmoshere

Why does it go sideways and not just straight up???

Author Batman ( ago)
Why does it go up, and then out? why not just up into space? It curves as if it's going far out of distance.. why doesn't the video show it going into space? I smell lies. 2:35 looks as if it's starting to come back down, then video cuts... and shows it flying not up, and into space... but away like a plane would.

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
