See How NASA’s RS-25 Rocket Engine Fared in This 525 Second-Long Static Firing

By: | August 20th, 2015


NASA tested its RS-25 rocket engine last week, four of which will be in charge of boosting the SLS rocket to Mars one day.

NASA’s Stennis Space Center (MS) conducted a 525 second-long static firing to calibrate a new controller for the legacy RS-25 engine.

In total, the engine technically burned for 545 seconds in what is being considered a very successful test.

One thing is for sure…

Four of these powering a rocket will be a sight to behold and will be a part of the most powerful rocket the United States has ever sent to space.
