What a View!

NASA had a camera mounted on one of Discovery's solid-rocket boosters last week that captured a really unique view of the shuttle's launch!

Very, very cool! Though I got a bit dizzy as the booster tumbled end-over-end after it separated from the shuttle and started falling back to Earth.

The clip covers the booster's entire flight and runs a little over 12.5 minutes. Main engine ignition is at about 0:55; splash-down at about 7:30.
