SLS RS-25 Main Engine Test Fire - Mike Killian Photography

SLS RS-25 Main Engine Test Fire #6

The Ferrari of rocket engine came to life again August 13, 2015, unleashing over a half-million pounds of thrust & a thunderous roar across southern Mississippi & NASA's Stennis Space Center during a 535-second test fire. The same engine that powered the space shuttle uphill so reliably for 3 decades, the RS-25, will again be employed for NASA's Space Launch System, upgraded to meet the new requirements for what will become the most largest & powerful rocket in history.
