SLS QM-1 booster test (NASA) A solid rocket booster planned for use on NASA's Space Launch System completed a successful test firing Wednesday. The five-segment booster fired for more than two minutes during a static test at Orbital ATK's Utah test facilities. NASA and company officials said initial data indicated the booster performed as expected. The test, designated QM-1, is the first of two planned to qualify the booster for use on the SLS, whose first flight is planned for some time in 2018. The second qualification test is planned for early 2016.
