In December 2014, the Planetary Society headed to Florida for the first test launch of the Orion spacecraft. There were already thousands of cameras pointing at the rocket, so we decided to point ours to the people.

This short documentary brings you to the Kennedy Space Center and shows you what it feels like to experience a launch this big.
