A space shuttle launch as you've never seen it.
If Hollywood ever dramatizes the launch of a space shuttle (a la the launch sequence from Apollo 13), it should look something like this. Not as long (they wouldn't show everything here), but with the ambient sound and dramatic music.

I suggest you make it full screen and crank the sound up (assuming you're somewhere that's okay, or you have headphones). There's actually lots of ambient sounds worth hearing. And be patient -- the first 2:40 are just okay, but they're only the opening credits. The real action kicks in at about 3:50.
