New and improved Artemis moon rocket engine test fired by NASA

NASA engineers have hot-fired the redesigned Artemis moon rocket in preparation for future Space Launch System (SLS) flights that will take humanity back to the moon and beyond. 

The test of the RS-25 engine was conducted at the Fred Haise Test Stand located at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The test is part of a series to support the production of the new RS-25 engines by contractor Aerojet Rocketdyne, the lead Space Launch System engine contractor.
