Washington – Nasa has successfully completed its rocket engine test series for its upcoming missions to the Moon and, eventually, Mars.

“This successful test series for the Space Launch System RS-25 engine puts us one step closer to manufacturing the first new set of engines for future Artemis missions to the Moon,” said Johnny Heflin, manager of the SLS liquid engines office at Nasa’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, in the statement.

“We are testing engine parts made with advanced manufacturing techniques that can reduce the cost of each engine by more than 30 per cent yet still maintain the RS-25 engine’s reliability and high performance,” Heflin added.
