NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) program, Core Stage prime contractor Boeing, and RS-25 prime contractor Aerojet Rocketdyne have completed the biggest test in the 10-year old program, firing the Artemis 1 flight stage for 500 seconds in the B-2 Test Stand at Stennis Space Center on March 18. The test was the highest hurdle for the program to clear before the agency’s new launch vehicle lifts off on its inaugural launch to send an Orion spacecraft to the Moon.
