This is the second and last qualification test of the largest solid rocket motor ever built. Two of these suckers will be strapped to the side of the Space Launch System (SLS) which will begin flights in 2018

I need to thank the whole NASA Social team for thinking I'm interesting enough to be invited to this event. I was absolutely blown away at the experience and the opportunity. Thanks!

DISCLAIMER: I was running five OTHER cameras and this camera was last to be set up. I screwed in onto a mono-pod, leaned it against the concrete barrier and hoped for the best. That's why the video has that strange lean to it. I might fix it later.

@Cassie Hermiston Absolutely. One of my cameras was shaking so badly that I can't recover the footage. :D

the rocket looks slow but it is very powerful

@我都懒的喷 The ACTUAL viewing area is about 10-15 miles away. Those solid rocket boosters will take humans beyond Earth orbit. Test flights of SLS will begin next year.
