Video: Space Shuttle Discovery's launch...from the rocket booster's point of view

The whole video is amazing, but a couple of  highlights include the booster separation at about 2:30 and the splashdowns in the 7th and 17th minute. You’re looking up at the parachutes when that second one happens. The separation in the 10th minute almost doesn’t look real. The views of the shuttle’s launch plume, from the edge of space as the booster falls back to earth end over end, are spectacular.
