don't take the cake out of the oven before it is fully baked...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

How about you learn to operate properly what is there already? There's plenty to do...

Hi there,
I have found
Code: Select all
SpaceShuttleLaunchAudio.wav
in the Sounds/ subdir of the Space Shuttle. That's very nice, are you preparing some nice surprise on the launchpad guys?

About the launch, I watched this movie recently

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubble_(film)

In there, there is a footage of Atlantis STS-125 launch, which is super nice. I don't know if they've heavily edited the sound, but the SSME start in a very loud explosion!?
Once they run, they sound exactly like our SpaceShuttle. The SRBs sound is also very close to what we have, but I was wondering about the sound of starting the SSME, is it smooth or explosive as in this movie? Anyone knows?

Cheers,
Chris.

have you seen those igniters that are sparking off when the SMEs are about to light? i would imagine that with enough unlit fuel being pushed out that when they do light, there is a pretty large explosion... at least one of sound... you can also see that it doesn't take long for the fire to reach all the way up into the nozzle cone...
