RS-25 Engine Thrust Frame Adapter
A RS-25 thrust frame adapter is positioned into place for mounting onto the A-1 Test Stand at NASA’s Stennis Space Center. Four RS-25 engines will power the core stage of NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS), which is being built to carry humans deeper into space than ever. Testing of the RS-25 engines at Stennis is scheduled to begin in mid-summer, after test stand modifications are completed.
