Watch the fiery separation of NASA’s lunar rocket boosters

NASA has released video captured by a camera aboard the Space Launch System lunar rocket showing a fiery separation of the rocket’s two strap-on boosters shortly after launch.

The camera, attached to the core stage of the 100-meter rocket, filmed the two solid-fuel boosters that helped lift the rocket off the ground during its milestone launch on November 16, falling off, flaming. The separation occurred two minutes and 11 seconds after the rocket lifted off into the night from a Kennedy Space Center launch pad at 1:47 a.m. EST (0647 GMT).
