RocketRay: The space shuttle used the same amount of energy as a 747 uses to fly from LA to Sydney. The 747 transports over 400 passengers and their luggage and takes about 12 hours. The shuttle flew up to seven passengers, a 10,000 pound payload, and the energy was almost completely consumed in 10 minutes.
styckx: My favorite Shuttle launch video.. Not so much for the video quality as it's only 240p... But the excellent audio capture.. Just sitting there breathing like a dragon and then the dragon comes to life... The audio is just AMAZING..
