Welcome to the unofficial site to download the DVD

It has been over 18 months since the Special Edition DVD was produced and NASA has still not found a way to make it available to the public.

Special Edition Trailer


Even after having the Riding the Booster video go Viral, we haven't been able to make headway to get the video content in the hands of the people.

Riding the Booster with Enhanced Sound



I suggested Amazon CreateSpace for on demand DVD publishing and Getting it put in the Google Play Store, Vudu, Netflix or other streaming sites, but so far nothing has come of it. So Today I am putting the DVD ISO file on my Google Drive for anyone to download. 

Ascent DVD ISO File


You should be able to just download the ISO file and then use your favorite DVD burning software to write the file to a DVD. Good tutorial for those that need help can be found here. How to Burn an ISO file to DVD

I will try to get a copy of the slipcase art to add to my Google Drive, but for now the ISO file is online so that you can burn your own DVD. 

Ascent Commemorating Shuttle

Photographic documentation of a Space Shuttle launch plays a critical role in the engineering analysis and evaluation process that takes place during each and every mission. Motion and Still images enable Shuttle engineers to visually identify off-nominal events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success. This imagery also provides highly inspirational and educational insight to those outside the NASA family.

This compilation of film and video presents the best of the best ground-based Shuttle motion imagery from STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 missions. Rendered in the highest definition possible, this production is a tribute to the dozens of men and women of the Shuttle imaging team and the 30yrs of achievement of the Space Shuttle Program.

The video was produced by Matt Melis at the Glenn Research Center. Ben Burtt Jr. and the Team at Skywalker Sound helped with the Riding the Booster Video.

This is not a NASA page, but since the DVD is public domain there is no issues with me sharing the DVD.
