Launch Pad Water Deluge System Test at NASA Kennedy Space Center

Follow by Email
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 preparation for launching our Space Launch System rocket on Exploration Mission-1 and subsequent missions. Modifications were made to the pad after a previous wet flow test, increasing the performance of the system. During launch, this water deluge system will release approximately 450,000 gallons of water across the mobile launcher and Flame Deflector. Credit: NASA Kennedy Space Center


Merchant Ivory : Pretty sure this was a top secret test attempting to launch water into space

Cisco A : California is on the phone

andrew nelson : Should have been titled “NASA’s Super Soaker”

Virdeo : Finally water cooling that can cool my amd cpu

Upcycle Electronics : Take that Bellagio! You ain't got notin on NASA... Vegas Shmagas.

Vladimir Lenin : *Now that's a lot of water*

Galaxy Goldbox : If it was a water park.. I will just jump in...and maybe die...who cares!?!

Commander Cosmic : Put some Flex Seal on it

Jeeva Jp : Jacking off after a long time be like

Unknown : Imagine you're deaf and you were on the walkway thing when it activated

Rui Leite : This is odly satisfying

Melvin F. : Wow! Please make a video explaining how it all works.

Billy Ritchie : All we need now is a rocket on that pad

Malachi186282 : How long does it take to fill the water tower from scratch?

akhil kadway : This was 450,000 gallons in 1 minute. Niagara Falls pours over 700,000 gallons of water per second. MIND BLOWN!!!!!!

R.M.S Olympic : This made me thirsty.

Raja Bandi : 😊 Close up of that water rise looks just like rocket 🚀 Takeoff.

Pandoraspocks : Better than Niagara Falls...

Sweettooth187 : Him: Has no job, multiple warrants, face tattoos, dropped out of highschool...and is over 6 feet. Her:

EyesOfByes : Looks like any Intel CPU-cooler to me

John T : Yeah, yeah but can you land a rocket on it?

terrorista31 : It looks kinda surreal lol also this got me pumped for the launch!

B R : Laminar flow!! How much pressure is that? And how many gallons? What does the pumping station look like? The piping has gotta be huuge! I see different colors in the water. What chemicals do you use? And what are their purposes? I have so many more questions!! Lol

Vin ce : and people complaining about a running water tap at Wok cooking stations

TechMantra : EK releases their new water cooling.

colorado841 : I will give it a about a 4/5 stars. I definitely recommend visiting. The landing was a bit rough, but the ride was a blast. A real adrenaline rush. The trick is to stay in the center for the whole ride.

emilio laban ramirez : A lot of tests. Blessings & success.

Sergey Solovey : Я использую примерно столько воды, когда чищу зубы.

bazz mc fury : The technical name for this device is "Chuck Norris's bidet"

Romulo Sarzenski : Blastoise used Hydro Pump. It's super effective.

DIOSpeedDemon : You are going to need more than One Plumber to fix that leak....!!!

blubyu : Freaking impressive!🤯😎😁 In my humble opinion I am guessing hardly any pumps used and massive Wells and tunnels dug under the ocean and surrounding Seashore to funnel up towards that area

KiddKoalaz : Me when Super Smash Bros Ultimate releases.

Wade’s Underworld : Hey NASA where’s my shill payment? It costs money keeping those flat earthers in check.😆👍 also I’m so excited about the SLS, I can’t wait until EM-1 I’ll probably have a full blown geek attack.👍 GO NASA!

Kendal Brown : nasa is cool mine space shuttle fight to the moon in 2021

RetroWeld : Rango needs this. 🦎💦

Sebi's Random Tech : Wish we had this for my Pentium 4 back in the day.

Volo : Dear NASA, Now you owe us a video of mopping up.

TheRebelOne : Breaking ...: Did you hear the undercover Caterpillar straight 6 at 1:30 or was it a Cummins 6BT.....who needs rockets when you can listen to that....🤔😁

Viktor Tsvetanov : Why you not transform heat energy in electricity!? Just install few pipes in the rocket launcher, one power turbine and done! NASA GOT GREEN

DeepBlue : NASA my favorite :)

EATSLEEPDRIVE2002 : When you see your buddy walking along the flight deck…

David Garston : Wow that an impressive amount of water.

strange lee : Is that to fill the new bottle rocket? Budget cuts eh?

titanium9000 : Godzilla's drinking fountain..! Oh, and really? 72 flat earthers? Jump off the planet please..

ANNE DROID : I can see the problem....... The pipework hasn't been completed & that's why water is going everywhere.

Clint Bagley : I work for the company that designed that. Go on milton j woods website and you cam see more like working on military aircraft and more

PhatKid68 : Now we just need a rocket to suppress the sound..... :( Thanks Obama!

rgerber : if you look closely, you can see that drop behaving slightly different
