2014-06-20 03:04:46

NASA NASA engineers recently went on an auricle ride as a scale model of the Space Launch System (SLS), including solid rocket motors, was fired -- giving an "earful" of information about how low- and high-frequency sound waves will affect the rocket on the launch pad. When completed, SLS will be capable of taking a crew and cargo on deep space missions, including to an asteroid and eventually Mars. "This test is unique because it's like going through the steps of a true launch, only...
