I'm downloading one by one the best Hazegrayart videos, and replace the sound with my own soundtrack (a mix of 1960-2010 pop music wonders, classic music and movie soundtracks: The Right stuff features prominently, Bill Conti awesome OST). I've made 32 videos so far.  My objective is to make the "ultimate CGI space movie": 1h30 of CGI & pop "space fest".

For my private use only however: I'm all too aware of copyright issues, make no mistake.

And so this morning I downloaded that one in 2160 HD, and added Dire Straits "On every street" as soundtrack.

Sooooo... you're asking us to send you a  PM in order to view your videos? The one you linked above is not viewable.

No, I didn't asked for that. I haven't made the final video yet, because each 2160 is 200 Mo heavy and joining them will result in a very large video.
- not easy to download and host
- plus the copyright issues I mentionned.

In a few words: haven't decided yet about what to do with the final result... any advice would be welcome.

Watching the booster and upper stage being joined reminds me of a pair of cats or dogs meeting.

Then there's the whole issue of salt water corrosion for sea-launched reusable spacecraft.

But it was a fun video anyway.

More info plus drawings of the Boeing Space Freighter from company documents can found at this link:

In retrospect, the Space Freighter would have been 506 feet tall, far bigger than the Starship but slightly taller than the Sea Dragon. Since the Sea Dragon was intended for launches from the water's surface, the Space Freighter holds the honor of being the biggest land-launched SLV project ever conceived. Did Boeing ever give a tentative estimate of the potential cost of development of the Space Freighter?
