Interesting THEMIS Mission Video on YouTube

Editor's note: Have a look at this new NASA Video - posted on YouTube. It shows the launch and deployment of the five THEMIS (Time History of Events and Microscale Interactions during Substorms) spacecraft. Whereas NASA videos always tend to be sedate as far as music is concerned, this one has an interesting upbeat soundtrack. If you have a subwoofer on your computer's sound system, by all means turn up the volume! Raw footage can be viewed here and a HiDef version of the footage can be viewed here as well. The deployment sequence is rather well done - and the image of Earth and the aurora borealisis rather stunning.
