The last of 15 RS-25 flight engines has made the 700-mile journey from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., to Stennis, where they will be stored for future testing and use on NASA's new Space Launch System (SLS). Engines arrive in protective crating and wrapping; some have been uncrated and hoisted into an upright position for warehouse storage while others will remain in crating until needed for the SLS Program. Built by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne of Canoga Park, Calif., the RS-25 engines also powered NASA's Space Shuttle Program with 100 percent mission success. The SLS is a new heavy-lift launch vehicle that will expand human presence beyond low-Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration across the solar system. The launch system will include a core stage powered by four RS-25 engines.
