Anyone care to comment on this YouTube video?


It seems like a fabrication to me, maybe the audio was from a launch drill...

As far as I know, the only shuttle abort was STS-51F, an ATO (Abort To Orbit). There has never been an RTLS (Return To Launch Site) abort.

The audio is from a launch simulation.

There has never been an actual RTLS abort....

In fact if you watch the video closely you can see the right engine functioning after the audio calls the right engine "down".
