Discovery Oddity

Let’s try something a little different for the music video today.  As you know, NASA successfully launched the space shuttle Discovery for mission STS-121 on July 4th.  What you may not know is that the NASA site has oodles of video from the launch, including a launch to splashdown clip recorded from the right forward solid rocket booster’s camera. 

Yah, yah, I said music video.  I took the footage and sped up portions of it to fit just under 5 minutes, and of course I had to add the appropriate music.  Get your space pr0n on with Discovery Oddity.

If you’ve got some time to kill, you can watch the unedited footage here.  Eventually, I’d like to give this a little more effort and incorporate some of the different vantage points, but I’m not exactly king of the video editing.

I am so gay for space.

Update: I added some other camera footage and fixed the audio.  And I’m still gay for space

    That was actually extremely cool.  Nice editing.  And what surprisingly clear and good camera angles from NASA.

    Wow, what a ride. Great song choice btw. Man how I would love to be one of those lucky few who get to ride on those rockets.
