NASA Tests Rocket Engine That Will Power Flight to Mars

March 11 -- Engineers at the Orbital ATK Inc. test facility in Promontory, Utah, conducted a successful test firing of a 177-foot long Space Launch System (SLS) rocket motor for NASA today. The two-minute test was a key step toward qualifying the rocket for flight. When completed, two five-segment, solid-rocket boosters and four RS-25 main engines will power the SLS as NASA begins its deep space missions to far-off asteroids and eventually to Mars.
