As if watching rockets going to space wasn't already awesome, SpaceX just released a two-minute supercut of 4K footage of its Falcon 9 rocket launches. It's got some slow-motion footage, some HDR-style footage, and lots of different angles of a vehicle that is capable of producing a million pounds of thrust. All of it is beautiful, even if it's accompanied by an unnecessarily loud techno track that covers up the thrilling sound of a rocket taking off.

Coincidentally, SpaceX has another Falcon 9 launch scheduled for next Monday. After the rocket helps deliver cargo to the International Space Station, the company will once again attempt to land its reusable Falcon 9 on an autonomous drone ship at sea — something it has unsuccessfully tried twice. No pressure.
