We where located in the news media viewing area called NASA causeway. This as close as anyone can get to the launch. This was the maiden voyage of the Orion spacecraft, and one of the very few Delta IV Heavy launches. In the beginning of recording you hear NASA announcer giving countdown into loud speakers, when you reach around the 1min 50 sec mark the true booster engine sound overtakes the PA system. WE are very grateful for the opportunity to share this, most powerful man made machine with 2.1million pounds of thrust to get millions of pounds into space.

    About 6 seconds after liftoff you are getting the sound of the actual rocket, way above and beyond the PA system.
