SLS completes Green Run static-fire test
Posted: Sat, Mar 20, 2021, 1:01 PM ET (1701 GMT)
Green Run second test (NASA) NASA's Space Launch System core stage successfully completed a full-duration static-fire test Thursday. In that Green Run test at the Stennis Space Center, the core stage fired its four RS-25 engines for 8 minutes and 20 seconds, the same amount of time it would operate on a launch. Agency officials said a couple hours afterward that test appeared to go exactly as expected. This was the second static-fire test of the core stage, after a January test that was shut down after a little more than a minute. The core stage tested Thursday will be shipped next month to the Kennedy Space Center for the Artemis 1 mission, currently scheduled for no earlier than November.
