FridayFix #141: Scott’s trip to NASA Stennis

FDØ watches RS-25 rocket test: takes world-domination notes

Scott met astronaut Jeanette Epps. Awesome!

I met astronaut Jeanette Epps. Awesome!

I was invited by NASA Social to watch a test of the RS-25 rocket engine, which once drove the Space Shuttle program and is now a main element of the Space Launch System (SLS). Watch this bad boy go from -400 to 6,000 freakin’ degrees in a matter of seconds, then instantly freeze back up again when the burn is done. Amazing stuff. Thank you, NASA!
