Test component for future rocket was lifted into place at Stennis Space Center
An important milestone for future space travel has been reached in our backyard.
A crucial test was completed at Stennis Space Center for a component that will be aboard the space launch system.
A test stand for one of the stages of the rocket was lifted into place to simulate future procedures in building the rocket.
The space launch system, built at the Michoud facility in New Orleans, is the rocket that will be taking humans back to the moon and eventually Mars.
