Stennis resumes testing on RS-25 engines Wednesday

Now that the Artemis I mission has proved successful, Stennis Space Center is preparing to begin its next round of testing for future Artemis missions.

NASA just announced it will start a new series of hot fire testing in Hancock County Wednesday.

These tests will support the production of future engines to help power the space launch system rocket on Artemis missions to the moon and beyond.

Tomorrow’s test window is set to open at 2 p.m.

The hot fire test will run for about eight and a half minutes, the same amount of time the engines must fire during an actual flight.

It will be livestreamed on Stennis Space Center’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
