Once in a while, there comes a video that takes the world by storm and remains indelible even after many years. NASA’s latest launchpad test video is one of them. The spectacular video shows 4,50,000 gallons of water being released onto a launch pad in order to cool it down after a launch. The video was shot at Kennedy Space Center in Florida after a rocket launch and later posted on NASA’s official YouTube channel. The video currently has more than 3.9 lakh views. Watch the video here: The space agency posted the video and also explained the reason why they poured 4,50,000 gallons of water. “This system is used to reduce extreme heat and energy generated by a rocket launch. “On Oct. 15, 2018, the Ignition Overpressure Protection and Sound Suppression water deluge system at Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39B was tested, sending water about 100 feet in the air. The test is part of the preparation for launching our Space Launch System rocket on Exploration Mission-1 and subsequent missions,” NASA added. They said the objective of this test was to reduce the extreme amount of heat and energy that is generated during and after a rocket launch. As reported by The Independent, the Exploration Mission-1 is set to launch in June 2020. It will be the first unmanned flight of the Space Launch System, a rocket arrangement that NASA has been working on for over 10 years now. NASA officials confirmed that a few modifications were made to the launch pad after the previous wet flow test, increasing the overall performance of the launch system.
