Watch: NASA’s Rocket Booster Test in Extreme Slow Motion

US space agency NASA used the magic of slow-motion video to show us the power of a rocket booster.

The space organisation has released a new video showing rocket motor testing in extreme slow-motion captured using an innovative camera.

The video offers a spectacular view of the QM-2 test by the company Orbital ATK on 28 June, which test fired a full-scale version of the solid rocket booster that will help launch NASA’s new Space Launch System mega rocket on missions into deep space, reported on Sunday.

To capture the booster test in high definition, NASA engineers and scientists used a High Dynamic Range Stereo X camera (HiDyRS-X).
