Rocket Booster Video of the Space Shuttle Discovery Launch.

Spine-tingling 9-minute, full-sound footage of a Space Shuttle launch (July 4th) via an onboard camera mounted to one of the SRBs...from liftoff to splash-down.

Great footage. I love the entire RocketCam program. I wonder if they had a camera on the main tank as well. I have seen footage from that before and it's spectacular when they jettison that tank.
Extra points for affixing a transducer to the spaceframe so we get all the nice creaks and pops from the SRB.
