Discovery’s Booster Rocket Films a Stupendous Full-Length Video | Popular Science.

Simply stupendous. The video footage, almost 30 minutes long, was captured from the final mission of Discovery, STS-133, dated February 24, 2011.

Cameras mounted on the solid-fuel rocket boosters that lifted the shuttle Discovery into space last week document their entire 30-minute voyage, from liftoff to splashdown. The ground recedes fast amid sparks and smoke; Discovery cuts loose and continues on its lonely voyage; the boosters capture some lovely shots of our planet as they spin and parachute and land safely in the ocean.
