VIDEO: Here’s Why NASA Shoots Out Half A Million Gallons Of Water When Launching A Rocket

Water may not be useful in propelling a rocket into the air but it helps to safely launch.

NASA is developing a massive water fountain for its Space Launch System that shoots out an insane 500,000 gallons of water in about a minute.

Besides helping to extinguish the flames from the rocket, the water also plays a major role in reducing sound waves from the launch that could otherwise damage the rocket.
