NASA test for ‘most powerful rocket in the world’ has component failure

NASA test for ‘most powerful rocket in the world’ has component failure

NASA conducted
a
hot
fire
of
the
core
stage
of
the
Space
Launch
System,
but
the
stage’s
four
main
engines
shut
down
just
over
1
minute
into
a
test
designed
to
last
8
minutes.

The
trial
was
a
vital
step
for
NASA’s
long-delayed
space
launch
system.
The
SLS
will
play
a
key
role
in the
agency’s
Artemis
program
to
return
US
astronauts
to
the
moon
before
2024. 

The
core
stage
ignited
its
four
RS-25
engines
at
5:27
pm
at
NASA’s
Stennis
Space
Center
in
Mississippi.

It
was
not
immediately
clear
why
the
engines
shut
down.
At
a
briefing
last
week
NASA
officials
and
officials
from
Boeing,
the
SLS
prime
contractor, said
they
needed
the
static
fire
test
to
go
at
least
250
seconds
to
collect
the
data
needed.

“If
we
had
an
early
shutdown
for
whatever
reason,
we
get
all
of
the
engineering
data
that
we
need
to
have
high
confidence
in
the
vehicle
at
about
250
seconds,”
said
John
Shannon,
vice
president
and
SLS
program
manager
at
Boeing,
according
to Space
News.

About
1,400
sensors
monitored
the
core
for
vibration,
temperature,
acoustics and
stress.

NASA
said
in
a
release
that
the
software
“acted
appropriately”
and
ended
the
test. 

 “At
this
point,
the
test
was
fully
automated.
During
the
firing,
the
onboard
software
acted
appropriately
and
initiated
a
safe
shutdown
of
the
engine,”
the
statement
read.

The
SLS
originally
was
set
to
make
its
flight
debut
in
2017,
but
has
been
plagued
by
delays
and
budget
shortfalls.
