Shuttle Main Engines Test Successfully

Engineers at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi have successfully tested what is expected to be the last of three Space Shuttle main engines that will carry the next Shuttle into orbit.

The engine tested will be shipped to Kennedy Space Center, Fla., for installation on Space Shuttle Discovery for its return-to-flight mission, designated STS-114. NASA plans to launch Discovery to the International Space Station no earlier than March 2005.
