The boosters will propel the Shuttle to a speed of 5,652 km/h. • 3512 mph

At approx two minutes after lift off, the SRBs have expended their fuel. They separate from the orbiter at an altitude of approx 49 km.• 30,4 ml. After separation, momentum will propel the SRBs for another 70 sec. to an altitude of 71,6 km • 44,1 ml before they begin their long tumble back to Earth. .

At an altitude of 4.6 km.• 2,5 ml. the nose cap is jettisoned and deploys a pilot parachute. These immediately deploys the drogue parachute which is attached to the top of the cone-shaped structure at the end of the booster.

At an altitude of 2.1 km • 1,2 ml the cone separates and this releases three main parachutes. These chutes will quickly slow the booster's speed from 370 km/h • 230 mph down to 82 km/h.• 51 mph. A motor nozzle extension is severed by a pyrotechnic charge approx 20 sec. later.
Approx. seven minutes after liftoff, the boosters impact the Atlantic Ocean.
