NASA Ships ‘Fish’ for Rockets

In this episode of NASA “Behind the Scenes,” go on board the two ships — Liberty Star and Freedom Star — which retrieve the shuttle’s solid rocket boosters after every launch. Astronaut Mike Massimino introduces you to the crew and takes you onboard the vessels to see what it takes to pull a 150-foot rocket out of the ocean. credit: NASA
