On June 28, the booster for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket was fired up for a major two-minute full-duration qualification ground test at Orbital ATK Propulsion Systems’ test facilities in Promontory, Utah. Engineers will evaluate test data on the motor’s performance using cold propellant, the steering operation of its redesigned nozzle, and other operational data to help qualify the booster for flight. This is the last time the booster will be fired in a test environment before it’s used for the first uncrewed test flight of SLS with NASA's Orion spacecraft, known as Exploration Mission-1, in late 2018. Also, SLS Test Hardware Arrives at Marshall, Juno Arrives at Jupiter July 4th, Test Lab Launched to Streamline Air Travel, Russian Docking System Tested on ISS, and NASA 2016 Agency Honor Award Distinguished Honorees.
