Relive Almost Every Rocket Launch of 2015 With This 32-Minute Supercut
The countdown to and subsequent launch of a rocket into space is a very satisfying event to behold, but what happens when you multiply it by 83? The space enthusiast behind the StartyRakiet.pl Vimeo profile tried to answer that question by creating a video compilation of 83 of the 87 orbital launches that took place in 2015, according to Gizmodo. (Four Chinese launches are missing because the creator couldn't find video of them.)
The 83 launches are presented in chronological order, from SpaceX's Falcon 9 v1.1 launch from Cape Canaveral on January 10 to the Gaofen-4 satellite launch aboard the Chang Zheng-3B/G2 rocket on December 28. Each clip includes the rocket name and launch date. In case 32 minutes isn't enough space propulsion for you, a Pastebin text file includes links to each individual full-length video used in the supercut.
