Remove the work of the rocket engine on the camera
In the photo you see the rocket jet jet. Little informative image, is not it? It will be the same with video.
A few days ago, the gizmodo.com portal announced that the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the creation of a High Dynamic Range Stereo X video camera (HiDyRS-X) capable of producing video of a jet stream .
Here is the video from this camera:
Rocket engines have been actively used for many years, but the jet stream has long been poorly understood, since it was impossible to examine in detail. The jet of flame that occurs during the operation of the rocket engine, has a great brightness, so the photo and video looks like a bright spot.
Using a video camera created in the framework of the HiDyRS-X project, NASA employees were able to see the jet stream. To do this, they used the same principle as the photographers when creating night shots - they combined several simultaneously taken shots into a single panorama.The HiDyRS-X camera can simultaneously take several frames with different parameters and independently merge them into one common video.
According to NASA, the new camera is still only a prototype. In the future, scientists plan to continue working on the project and create on its basis full-fledged fixation systems that will help in the development of new rocket engines.
