    It seems to me that if they would have played this type of video on the nightly newscasts NASA's funding might not have gotten the ax.

    NASA was a product of the cold war, it was created as another thing to try and beat the Russians at. Once the cold war ended, NASA was no longer a priority in the government's eyes. I'm surprised their funding didn't get axed a long time ago.

    Wow, I watched it all, with a slightly slack jaw... :respect:

    Here's another one, where they recover the large solid rocket booster. These are the background ops one normally never sees - the unsung heroes of space shuttle launches.

    Indeed you can't. You can't transmit sound through the void between two objects. However, you will hear the creaks and growns that an object makes which is placed in direct contact with the microphone.

    For example, if the radio link between two astronaughts failed, then they could touch helmets and hear each other that way. It would be a bit muffled, of course.

    Ive always wondered, how do they know where to drop the boosters so they don fall in the middle of a city and kill someone?

    Launch location and trajectory. Plus, they make sure that the waters in a wide area are free of ships and boats during a launch.
