into outer space strapped to space shuttle boosters then back down with a splash in 800 secs...

mesmerizing! (then again I am easily amused/amazed/mesmerized)
Spectacular footage from a new special edition of the NASA documentary Ascent: Commemorating Shuttle.

Your hosts: two cameras strapped to the side of the booster rockets on Atlantis and Endeavour as they accelerate to over 4,800kph, re-enter the atmosphere from 66km up and hurtle back down to the ocean.
