    That was cool. For the first minute and a bit I thought the green dots at the top of the video were bushes and it was still on the ground. Then BAMM it's in space!

    Wow. Beautiful and surreal. Really cool (slightly creepy) sounds also.

    [edit] That said, I wouldn't be surprised if someone cut the first couple of minutes, then put Brian Eno's "An Ending (Ascent)" over it -- which is coincidentally really well timed from detachment to the camera blackout.

    But I tried both and definitely prefer it the way it is now with the raw atmosphere sounds.

    Free fall from space doesn't seem all that bad..

    Aren't they awesome? That weird howling noise makes it like being pulled in by some giant animal.

    When 10 seconds has been reached press play on the second video.

    Same here, and then I saw the bushes slowly moving and thought "Oh shit. We're in space."
