NASA Social – RS-25 Rocket Engine Test


NASA invited social media users to John C. Stennis Space Center on August 13 to participate in a NASA Social and to experience the sixth developmental test of an RS-25 rocket engine. Four of the former space shuttle main engines will power the core stage of the new Space Launch System (SLS) rocket , which will carry humans deeper into space than ever before, including to an asteroid and Mars. Participants not only saw and felt the power of the RS-25 engine test, but also got behind-the-scenes access to America’s largest rocket engine test facility and question and answer sessions with key personnel.
