It's T minus 10 hours until liftoff and space shuttle personnel are prepping for launch. The shuttle is loaded with its payload and propellant. All systems are checked, weather is monitored and a team of thousands works to ensure that all systems are go during the launch window.
This video includes some of those sounds as the shuttle is being readied for takeoff. To make it as soothing as possible, only a portion is used to create the ten hour track and all extraneous noise has been removed. Block out even the loudest distracting sounds with this white noise mix. Great for helping you sleep, study or improve focus.
Who here totally misses the space shuttle? Can you believe its been five years since NASA retired its fleet? I was traveling through Los Angeles and got to see one of the shuttles at the science museum there. It's totally worth it to see in person, if you get a chance.
