Flotech and Pentair Provide Continuing Education at NASA Kennedy Space Center
Last week Flotech and Pentair staff conducted a seminar and review of the applicable codes and standards for maintaining pressure relief devices. Over ninety folks from NASA and ULA, including design engineers, system engineers, technicians, safety engineers, quality engineers, and project managers attended the half-day event at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
“On behalf of everyone at KSC that attended the training, we want to extend a huge thank you to you and your team ! The expertise Chris and you provided were superb!! For some, it was a great refresher and for others, it was very educational. I have had employees mention how this course was beneficial in helping them in their job, so I appreciate the effort that went into pulling the content together.”

Put legs on rockets for reuse?
The introduction of reusable rockets by SpaceX and Blue Origin will lead to cutting millions of dollars from the costs of launching rockets to deliver satellites and other missions into space.
Historically rocket boosters dropped into the ocean and were discarded with each use. SpaceX landed first stage rockets on drone barges and more recently back on terra firma.
Their plan is to begin reusing rocket stages this year. This should keep the folks at the Kennedy Space Center very busy.
Here is a quick 3-minute video of SpaceX recent launch and landing Falcon 9.
