Interactive video lesson plan for: Real Martians Moment: This Stuff Never Gets Old!

Activity overview:

Corey Harrell works as an Air Space Engineer at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. On a routine basis, he gets to experience, what you might call, “The Big Bang on Earth” and it never gets old! This is also known as testing rocket engines. One engine in particular, the RS-25 will help provide the “bang” that NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) Rocket needs to carry astronauts farther into space than ever before – including to an asteroid in orbit around the moon and eventually to Mars. But the most important part of his job is safety! All of that thrust, power and noise is only fun and useful if the proper engineering and precautions are developed and implemented. Because, quite literally there will be a lot more than fun riding on it when these engines are used for the first human mission to Mars!
