Video: Camera strapped to Space Shuttle boosters

Man is this cool:

Just before the 6-minute mark, you can see the parachutes deploy, followed by splash down some 30 seconds later. [Via]

By the way, on the off chance you’re wondering what this possibly has to do with Adobe or this blog, I’ll just note that I have a soft spot for the overlap of science & imaging (see related category).

    Wow! That IS cool! And with the Mother of All Lens Flares (I’m guessing that’s not an Adobe effect in action?).
    After about 4 minutes, I think the column of smoke from the launch rolls into view a couple of times, over near the horizon.

    Wow. Utterly wow. And the soundtrack is a spectacular work of timbral art.
