NASA’s Stennis Space Center Conducts RS-25 Engine Test


On March 23, NASA conducted a test of an RS-25 engine at the agency’s Stennis Space Center in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Four RS-25’s will help power NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket to space. During this test, engineers evaluated the engine’s new controller or “brain”, which communicates with the SLS vehicle. Once test data is certified, the engine controller will be removed and installed on one of the four flight engines that will help power the first integrated flight of SLS and the Orion spacecraft.
