NASA Sets Sights on Testing Space Launch System Engines

All sights are set on testing RS-25 engines that will power NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) following completion of a series of hotfire tests on the next-generation J-2X engine Sept. 5.

NASA conducted a 330-second test fire of the J-2X rocket engine on the A-1 Test Stand at the agency's Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi. The stand now will be prepared to house and test RS-25 engines, beginning next spring

One Final Test for J-2X Engine No. 10002

J-2X Engine No. 10002 is test fired for the final time on the A-1 test stand at NASA's Stennis Space Center. The 330-second test was the last in a series of gimbal, or pivot, tests on the engine. Following the removal of this engine, the test stand will be modified to begin RS-25 engine testing. J-2X testing has provided valuable data and experience for the team developing the RS-25 engine, which will power the core stage of NASA's new Space Launch System.
