POV Shuttle Booster Free Fall From Space

As an avid follower of space exploration I love seeing this video path from orbit to the Indian Ocean. It starts with the solid rocket booster separating from the Space Shuttle Atlantis. It is filmed with a camera mounted on the booster itself, so you can follow the hypnotic free-fall from from space to the ocean. Very cool, very creative.
