Having never been to a rocket launch, can you tell me how far the sound carries?
I can hear the rumble of F-15 Eagles take off from inside my office building five miles from the airport. An F-15C is about 149 dB with afterburners.
The space shuttle and Saturn V rockets were much louder. A test of the Saturn V Rocket reached 204 decibels.
Is there a standard distance from Cape Canaveral that launches can be heard?
