Shuttle's Boosters Recovered in HD

A bit long, but nice and unique geeky stuff here.
This will all end soon, so thanks to NASA for this nice bit of film.

"NASA has released the first ever up-close, high-definition video of Kennedy Space Center's solid rocket booster (SRB) recovery ships retrieving SRB segments from the Atlantic Ocean following a space shuttle launch.

The unprecedented video is from the launch of the most recent shuttle mission, STS-133, Discovery's final flight, on Feb. 24.

Following each space shuttle launch, crew members of Liberty Star and Freedom Star pull the spent boosters out of the ocean and return them to Hangar AF at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

Once they are processed, the boosters are transported to Utah, where they are refurbished and stored, if needed."
