NASA Tests 2nd RS-25 Flight Engine for Space Launch System

On Jan. 16, 2018, Engineers at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi conducted a certification test of another RS-25 engine flight controller on the A-1 Test Stand at Stennis #Space? Center. The 365-second, full-duration test came a month after the space agency capped a year of RS-25 testing with a #flight? controller test in mid-December. For the “green run” test the flight controller was installed on RS-25 developmental engine E0528 and fired just as during an actual launch. Once certified, the flight controller will be removed and installed on a flight engine for use by NASA’s new deep-space #Rocket?, the Space Launch System (SLS). Credit to : NASA
