    These videos are just absolutely amazing to me, even the Russian Soyuz and Chinese Rockets are amazing to watch launch. (I won't link them, if you're interested all you have to do is a quick Google search )

    And here is a video of a Space Shuttle launch viewed from an airplane;

    37 million horsepower from a space shuttle. That's a lot of horses. An average road car has between 90-250 horsepower. Just to throw a comparison in there.

    Great videos, very educational.
