Part 1 of the solid rocket booster camera replays from space shuttle Atlantis' launch on mission STS-132 from Kennedy Space Center. NASA places three cameras on the outside of each solid rocket booster to record the liftoff and ascent to orbit. A camera is places at the bottom of each rocket, one at the so-called intertank region to view the ribbed section of the external fuel tank about 2/3 the way to the top of the space shuttle stack and one camera is placed just below the nose of each booster. The cameras at the intertank region also record the sound of launch. The cameras run until splashdown of the SRB's into the Atlantic Ocean.
