Here is a video from NASA, the American government agency that is responsible for the space shuttle and other rocket launches. The video shows the space shuttle’s solid boosters returning to earth. The solid boosters are two of the space shuttle’s gas tanks. When the space shuttle is high enough off the earth, the boosters break off from the space shuttle and land in the ocean. This video takes about five minutes to watch. It follows the boosters from the time the break away from the space shuttle to the time they splash down in the ocean. Be sure to watch all the way to the end to see a surprise.
