Caption

A wide shot of Space Launch Complex 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, with a Delta II 7920-H rocket carrying NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope. The commentator counts down from ten to zero, as we cut to a close up view of the main engine nozzles at the moment of ignition. As it lifts off the pad we cut to the original wide shot of the pad. Then a telephoto lens tracking shot as it rises into the steel-grey sky and passes through several banks of cloud. Close up tracking shots of the rocket show a cluster of solid rocket boosters, their tips glowing hot. The nose cone carrying the satellite forms a condensation ring around it as the rocket accelerates through the lower atmosphere. One minute into the flight the rocket reaches Max Q and the coverage switches between cameras tracking it from multiple angles. Separation of the solid rocket boosters takes place in a cloud deck about 3 minutes into the footage, just before the end of the clip.
