Stennis Space Center (SSC)

For five decades and counting, Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi has served as NASA’s primary rocket propulsion testing ground. Today, the center provides propulsion test services for NASA and the Department of Defense, as well as the commercial sector. It is home to NASA’s Rocket Propulsion Test Program, which manages all of the agency’s propulsion test facilities. It also has grown into a “federal city” that hosts more than 40 resident agencies and has become a leader in promoting the use of NASA science research to address community issues. The center was established in the 1960s to flight-certify all first and second stages of the Saturn V rocket for the Apollo manned lunar landing program. From 1975 to 2009, its primary mission was to test the main engines that propelled space shuttle vehicles on their eight-and-one-half-minute ascent into orbit. Stennis now is testing RS-25 engines that will help to power the core stage of NASA’s new Space Launch System. The center also is working with commercial companies, such as SpaceX, to test the engines and components they will need in order to achieve their own space missions.
