NASA engineers conducted a successful developmental test of RS-25 rocket engine No. 0528 on July 29, to collect critical performance data for the most powerful rocket in the world – the Space Launch System (SLS). NASA official website reports that the engine roared to life for a full 650-second test on the A-1 Test Stand at NASA’s Stennis Space Center, near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, marking another step forward in development of the SLS, which will launch humans deeper into space than ever before, including on the journey to Mars. Four RS-25 engines, joined with a pair of solid rocket boosters, will power the SLS core stage at launch.
