The video was taken when NASA staff checked how the water was sprayed during the take-off of the rockets. No scientist was injured during the flood.
Each rocket during take-off gives off a huge amount of heat energy, which must be somehow “extinguished”. This can be done with water, which is supplied under pressure to the engine nozzles.
Specialists of the Center. J. Kennedy in Florida decided to test how the system works by itself, without a starting rocket. “The test was excellent,” Regina Spellman, the center’s leading employee, told the Daily Mail.
NASA employees did not doubt that the spectacle would be terrific, and they specially photographed the water discharge test on the video. 1700000 liters of water – you probably have not seen such a fountain yet!
