NASA launch fun fact – the white billow smoke

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Fun Launch Fact!!!!!Did you know that that white billowy smoke from the Shuttle is actually steam? Millions of gallons of water are pumped on the launch platform during launch to help suppress the noise. In seconds the heat vaporizes the water into steamy clouds that add to the drama of the launch, but serve an important purpose!
