Excellent Report from Rusty Hodge on STS-133

Rusty Hodge at Groove Salad recently published a great soundscape and news report entitled "The Launch of Space Shuttle Discovery".

It includes a mix of music and sounds at the Space Shuttle Discovery STS-133 launch from the NASA Launch Complex 39 VIP & Press viewing area.

It is a great listen with excellent production.  I highly recommend listening with a good set of headphones if possible.
