New FTP Video section
« on: 08/21/2005 12:52 AM »
Over the coming few days I will be uploading a number of videos we've had done and collected over the years, relevant to the Shuttle and space flight.

They will be special links from our forum to our FTP site (still on NASA Space Flight) - meaning super fast downloads.

PLEASE NOTE: This will be a MEMBERS only area of the site...so if you are a guest reading this, sign up (takes 30 seconds and it's free) or you won't be able to see that part of the forum.

I will post again when it's up, but you won't be anything but happy bunnies when you get on it! :)

On line. You will be able to see the thread at the bottom of the forum (not sure if I'll keep it at the bottom), but you'll only be able to enter it if you have a username.

Will be adding stuff all the time.

We've just acquired around 600 videos through an agreement for the video section - so if you have any requests (even if they seem silly) just post them here. This includes Apollo stuff.

At least six videos. I'll get them on this week under a SkyLab thread on the video section.

Hey, am I seeing this right, SkyLab 2 Launch video has a Saturn1B? It's like a chopped down Saturn V on a milkstool launch stand! :)

I've spotted this right away: All videos - if you have any launch designations, that may help too - as I'm getting these from several databases we've been granted to use.

1) A brief tour of Skylab

2) Skylab 2 launch & flyaround inspection

3) EVA, Pete Conrad running laps, & undocking from Skylab

4) Soyuz & Apollo launches & rendezvous

5) A handshake in orbit

6) Phone call from President Ford to Skylab

7) Message from Leonid Breznev to Skylab

You're in luck. Have a cool video not much unlike the tour of Mir video I put on tonight. :) They'll be put on this week (maybe tomorrow if I get time). About 22mbs of video in total.

Ok, so I'm too young for all this moon rocket stuff and I want to see loads more Shuttle stuff, but I do like the launches of those moon rocket types (dunno what they are called). Got any more of those launches?

They are called Saturn V (or 5) rockets - I have many  

I mean, we've got 9 video (as in threads) up, but we'll have several hundred up over time at least. I'll try and add about 3 a day.

Howdy,

Nice job with the videos! A suggestion: when the ftp start to tax too much bandwith do consider putting the video-content on a BitTorrent server. And if it's permissible, put a collection of videos to some public torrent site, like torrentspy.com. Having it there might get another geek or two interested in space stuff.

Ho Tap-Sa, welcome to the site :)

 Yeah, that would be a good idea...I'll have a look at that site.

 We'll be fine for quiet a while as the videos are actually on a seperate specialised server we bought (as in the news site and forum are on dedicated servers, but the video FTP has it's own 'purchased in' server by our web people).

Thanks for the video section. Some very nice stuff so far!

A section devoted to engine ignition closeup videos would be neat (assuming there are enough still available). The ones from the Saturn V's were incredible.  Any from old or new boosters might be worth posting, too. (The Delta4 ignitions are lots of fun to watch!)

I remember running across a few videos showing slow motion closeups of the Shuttle SRB ignitions with the hold down bolt cuts several years ago that were really interesting. (Unfortunately I never bothered saving any. :( )

Some of those videos can be seen here:

Enter shuttle only, and video only, and then search. They come up on the very first results page.

Welcome to the site. Thanks for the kind words. We'll be getting in a lot more videos from a lot of different places over the coming days. We're just working on something on the FTP section, which not only will remain free, but will also be opened to ALL users on this site, including non registered users - as part of our mandate to open up all space flight media to all interested people for free.

I may sound like a cheerleader here, but this young site is doing really fine work for helping expand the interest for space flight to the general public. It's got a very nice balance of being clear with presentation, allowing those of us who wish to speak within the industry on issues we want to talk about, while having the likes of this video page for people who may just be getting into the subject field.

It's very sharpe, not overrun by ads and fancy flash videos, yet has the cool factor. I'm very impressed by Chris and his team. It doesn't feel like a brand new site which it still is.

Keep up the good work.

Trying to see what I can find, Norm.

On another note, I'll have every launch and even every angle of a launch on the server over time. Might even split the video section into STS launches and other, soon.
