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

  • Added:  6 years ago
  • - - 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!

    And I was fortunate enough to see one lift off live. Night launch to boot.

    Amazing how 100 years ago man barely could fly and now we launch men into orbit almost daily
    We"ve come so far that and it seems so unbelivable

  • jimmy playinghardball2

    they say the shuttle is just a glider but its not, you can clearly see the engines glowing, it can easily fly just like an airplane, land and take off on it's own from the US naval base 1000 miles away in Bermuda off the coast of the Atlantic ocean

    • jrockett73

      Yes, the rocket engines are used on launch but not on landing. Can you prove any of that nonsense you talk? No you can't. The orbiters are real, your understanding of reality is not.

    Below is a link to the latest satellite launch from NASA, the first Delta IV launch of 2017. Now tell me, why would they not have a single camera on the actual rocket? Why would they not want to watch actual footage of the stages of the launch? As soon as we see the rocket take a parabolic flight into the sky, they cut to a CGI rendering of the satellite going through its stages. That makes zero sense. You mean to tell me NASA relies solely on computer data and they don't care to have a visual on what the satellite is actually doing? My point is this: They have NEVER had a camera on a rocket or a satellite or a probe with a live stream or an unedited straight shot from ground to space. Now ask yourself why not? Here, witness the latest fuckery in all its brilliance. You might want to skip a lot of it because it's a long video for 2-3 minutes of CGI:

    Ok I promise this is my last comment, idiots like "bee master" and such need to understand how radiation works. There is a limit on dosage, the astronauts were exposed to very minimal radiation. Idiots also need to understand what radiation shielding is. For idiots, please research ' Radiation shielding".

    • jrockett73
      jrockett73 1 month ago

      The white smoke is gaseous oxygen exiting the engines. Its used to pre-chill the engines. The spark arrestors are used to burn away gaseous hydrogen that may form pockets around the orbiter. The engines start hydrogen rich and the hydrogen may explode damaging the orbiter. The prism is the engine exhaust diamond formed from ignition of the engines.

    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.

    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.
