At Launch Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, liquid hydrogen tank that supported space shuttle launches for 30 years have been sandblasted, repaired and repainted. Along with the liquid oxygen storage vessel, the two tanks are designed to store super-cold propellants. They were refurbished to support NASA’s Space Launch System rocket and other launch vehicles.
