This is actually pretty cool, and the sound mixing and enhancement was done by Skywalker Sound.
A few observations:
- You get to see the speed of the launch in mph in the upper-right – it almost reaches 3000 mph.
- When it reaches mach 1, around 700 mph, you get to see what I think is a bunch of water vapor break apart, per Neidl deGrasse Tyson.
- I didn’t know parachutes aid in the splash down.
