Watch NASA Retrieve Two Humongous Solid Rocket Boosters From the Ocean [Video]

Having fallen from the sky during space shuttle Discovery’s final flight, two solid rocket boosters float in the ocean until NASA swings by to collect them. Watch as crew members aboard the boats Liberty Star and Freedom Star collect the used boosters in order to return them to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, which is where they’ll be processed, and shipped off to Utah if they need to be refurbished.
