Space Shuttle Launch Raw Audio - Listen with Headphones!

Check out all of my NASA coverage at - great photos and videos.

I recorded this at the last Space Shuttle launch with a Zoom audio recorder. I placed it on the ground and dialed back the gain quite a bit. The voices you hear are some of the media folks who were in range of the mic. What's amazing is that you don't hear much of anything until about 20 seconds or so after liftoff. The sound rolls in until you're eventually feeling everything you're hearing. #atlantis #launch #roar #shuttle #space #thunder
