Very cool, you can get a glimpse of the launch contrail at 3:39 and 5:09, and after breaking the sound barrier the mph reading goes ballistic

cool video, thanks for the link. At the end, you can also see the other booster coming down ( well, something with it's own chute)

I think the first single chute comes down. I was wondering the same thing. You can see the booster dangling from something (like a single chute) then the 3 chutes blow and it looks like you can see a single up above. Killer video no matter what!

I've seen about a dozen NASA vids like this from shuttle pieces going up and coming down, all of them linked at Phil Plait's blogs over the years. As amazing as these are and always will be, the video I am really waiting to see is from the guy who's going to jump out of a helium balloon at 120,000 feet, breaking a 50 year old record. And if all goes well with his trials, it won't be too long a wait.

He's working with Joe Kittinger, who did it long before anyone knew it was possible/safe enough. Before Yuri Gagarin ever when to space, Joe did in a balloon. Some awesome video came from his three jumps, two in the mid-70,000 feet, and the last over 101,000'.

This has the three jumps basically in order: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=MRxaxNG2XoY (external link)
