NASA TV footage

When I got home last night I went through the DVR because I left it recording for 2 hours after the shuttle launch. NASA TV replayed the launch over and over again from all the different cameras that were trained on it. It was amazing to see the detail and the number of views. The best one of course was the external tank camera, which they replayed for the full 9 minutes from booster ignition to tank jettison. When the shuttle throttled up the engines after the boosters had been jettisoned, you could see the orbiter strain forwards against the supports holding it to the tank.
