Video: Apollo 11 Saturn V Launch

Trust me, this is one of the best things you will see today.

This amazing video was taken during the mobile launch program of Apollo 11, on July 16, 1969.  The clip is an HD transfer from the 16mm original footage, captured by Camera E-8 on the launch tower.

According to the narrator, the high-speed camera was shooting video at 500 fps. So, in effect, we are actually watching a slowed down version of the 30 second clip.

I highly recommend watching the HD version of the launch on Vimeo.
