Great video of an amazing event. However, of all the vids I have seen of this, this one for me is tinged with sadness. That Stoneheng-looking thing
in the right-foreground is the abandoned launch-pad 34. Built to launch the Saturn I & IB rockets to test Apollo capsules in Earth orbit, it is the
site of the Apollo 1 fire that killed Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee on January 27, 1967.
There's a lot of history sitting around that there cape. I'm glad to see it is still being made.
