Jan. 16: Artemis I Hot Fire Test

0
(0)

NASA is targeting the final test in the Green Run series, the hot fire, for Sat., Jan.16. The hot fire is the culmination of the Green Run test series, an eight-part test campaign that gradually brings the core stage of the Space Launch System (SLS) — the deep space rocket that will power the Artemis program’s human missions to the Moon — to life for the first time. All four of the stage’s RS-25 engines will be fired simultaneously for up to eight minutes to simulate the core stage’s performance during launch.

The next time this core stage will be fired is during the launch of Artemis I, the first integrated flight of SLS and Orion, and the first mission of the agency’s Artemis program.

  1. funny how this over-hyped video allows comments while the video of the failed test has comments disabled. Stop this waste of money for no purpose program already. It is a waste of money that could be used for better purposes otherwise. Imagine what the private space sector could do with (tax payer money) funding of this magnitude. You are feeding a dead horse that is based on outdated technology, outdated engines, outdated boosters, to create an outdated vehicle with zero reusable components. NASA, government, please end this madness and fund the companies that take space travel into the future, not live in decades old outdated programs and technology.
