Mercury-Redstone 1 launch failure video
Mercury-Redstone 1 (MR-1) was the first flight test of the Redstone rocket in Project Mercury.
Intended as an unmanned sub-orbital spaceflight, it was launched on November 21, 1960 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The launch failed in a peculiar fashion with the rocket shutting down just after liftoff. As such it became know as the "four-inch flight".
The video is presented in real-time, with side-by-side views of the rocket.
Interestingly, the original footage was taken at different speeds. The view on the right had a higher frame rate originally, as is typical of engineering cameras.
Here, it was matched to view on the left. Sounds were recreated, since there's no audio of this event.
