Falling Back To Earth

“A GoPro inside a fairing from a recent Falcon 9 flight captured some spectacular views as it fell back to Earth. Footage is played in real time.”

Well, the music is better than 95% of youtube flight videos :smile:

That’s a reference to the 2001 movie right? (That music…)

Yeah, Just recently watched Interstellar and there was so many references to 2001, It was quite cool comparing scenes from the 2 films makes it seem almost unbelievable that 2001 space odyssey was released a year before the moon landings.

Indeed, here’s the original, like @Maclean said, made even before the first moon landing…

It’s also the docking music in Elite- Frontier 2 (as a homage), and it always slightly irritated me that people would hear it and say, ‘hey, the music from elite - cool!’ :smile:

I love that docking scene from 2001. Makes me want to watch the movie again, for the 13 millionth time!

Nice vid from the Falcon fairing.
