You're also seeing RCS thruster plumes. I think that big "ring of fire" around the tail of the vehicle is what happens when the SSME plumes get out from behind the windbreak of the fusalage and hit the slipstream. Some sort of dynamic effect between the exhaust and the atmosphere. I wish they would put some cameras on one of these launches in different locations and without a fisheye lens. Someday soo there won't be a space shuttle anymore and the coolness factor of these flights will be lost.

True, I think Ares looks cool, but the shuttle is far cooler.

I am seriously suffering or fighting this, especially in the last couple of months, and this video is so true...

That video is well-made, and horrible. I could feel time wasting as I watched it. Why does so much art involve drowning in pools of despair?

Everything is better with Autotune, no exceptions.

Even cosmology.
