SpaceX Tests 5.2 Meter Fairing Separation Test

SpaceX released this separation test video of their on-house designed 5.2m fairing which is undergoing testing at NASA Glenn Research Center Plum Brook Station.

From SpaceX, the "fairing is used to protect a satellite during launch. Separation occurs when the rocket is traveling over 4x faster than a speeding bullet, nearly 10x the speed of sound."
