An upgraded Merlin engine designed to boost the lift capacity of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket has completed a full mission duration test firing in Texas, the company announced Monday.

The Merlin 1D engine completed 185-second firing with 147,000 pounds of thrust, SpaceX announced.

Future Falcon 9 rockets will be powered by nine Merlin 1D first stage engines. SpaceX calls the evolved booster the Falcon 9 v1.1.
