WARE Steam Culture Louisville KY Boiler Rental On this episode of Steam Culture, Brent takes us on an adventure to the NASA Shuttle Launchpad. Today, he shows us how the folks at NASA launch rockets into space using water that evaporates into steam.

When boosters below the rocket are firing, the sound suppression system is activated (protecting the rocket and essentially the astronauts) and the rainbirds flood the launchpad (with 300,000 gallons of water!) to counteract the acoustical energy and reflective pressure.

Watch the video to learn more and see a super cool rocket launch at the end!
