A different point of view of a space shuttle launch

Not much more to say about this next video, just sit back and enjoy.  The title sums it up well.  The audio is also fascinating.

From io9.com:
"Absolutely mindblowing video shot from the Space Shuttle during launch"

From the article:
Try to let what you're witnessing sink in. See those numbers flying past in the upper right hand corner? That's the Shuttle's airspeed. See that gleam of light against the inky backdrop of space at 2:08 and 3:11? That's the Shuttle continuing on its flight path into low Earth orbit. Hear the eerie rattling, haunting moans, and weird dinosaur noises? That's what it sounds like to be a Solid Rocket Booster, falling to Earth from an altitude of 150,000 feet.
