I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

SLS Qualification Booster TestPublished on Mar 11, 2015
Orbital ATK Promontory, Utah - Captured Live on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-msfc



Hello guys,
I watched this replay and found sth interesting: @42:33 you can see a moving object against the red tank. What could it be, a birdie or a moving cam? Seems more likely to be a bird since it is 'nodding'.

Very cool.

The slow action of the fireballs at tailoff is mesmerizing.

You can clearly see the oscillation waves in the exhaust near the end as well.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

I take it that the jagged material is what is left of the insulation that covers the end of each segment.  I am amazed that so much is left, considering that this section of material would be perpendicular to the exhaust of the booster.  It must bode well to how well the walls must have held up.
