NASA We Explore


Why do we explore?  Simply put, it is part of who we are, and it is something we have done throughout our history. In NASA’s new video, “We Are the Explorers,” we take a look at that tradition of reaching for things just beyond our grasp and how it is helping us lay the foundation for our greatest journeys ahead.

STS-129

NASA is hard at work for our continuation of space exploration.  Like Gen Kranz the Flight Director for Apollo 13 at the time said, “When bad things happen, we just calmly laid out all the options and failure was not one of them”.  Tough and competent, “we are forever accountable for what we do or fail to do.  We will never take anything for granted. We will never fall short of our knowledge or our skills”.

Until we move out of low orbit which won’t be long,  let’s look back and ride with an old friend.  The  Space Shuttle Atlantis,  ascent highlights from the STS-129 mission to the International Space Station.

Riding the Booster

Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay by NASA/Glenn a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound.  The sound is all from the camera microphones and not fake or replaced with foley artist sound.  The Skywalker sound folks just helped bring it out and make it more audible.

This is the best,  the audio is outstanding along with the filming.  A speed indicator is featured in the upper right of the film.  You can witness the approach to the speed of sound along with the audio and check out the smoke plume trail from the Cape rising from Florida on UP!  This is seen from the booster camera on descent.
