The SLS completes another important milestone

The world’s most powerful rocket – NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) – just completed the most substantial rocket structural test campaign since the Space Shuttle over 30 years ago at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Given the massive size of this exploration rocket that will carry American astronauts to deep space, data from these and other SLS systems tests will be used to verify the design of the core stage, propulsion, and avionics systems are ready for space flight in the years ahead as NASA returns to the Moon, goes to Mars, and sends spacecraft to the outer planets of our solar system.

These milestones pave the way for the last major test of the SLS program before it begins launching to the Moon: the “Green Run” test. The completion of the structural testing gives NASA the confidence that the engines, tanks, fuel lines, valves, pressurization system, and software can all perform together just as they will on launch day.

Ben vowed from that day on to get his hands on as many tech products as possible. Ben’s approach to a review is to make it informative for the technofile while still making it understandable to everyone. Ben is a new voice in the tech industry and is looking to make a mark wherever he goes. When not reviewing products, Ben is also a 911 Telecommunicator just outside of Pittsburgh PA.
