NASA Decides To Do SLS Green Run Test

"Green Run" Test Will Pave the Way for Successful NASA Moon Missions

"NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine announced July 25 the agency will conduct an "Green Run" core stage test for the Space Launch System rocket ahead of the upcoming Artemis 1 lunar mission. The first eight minutes of every Artemis mission with NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will begin with core stage and solid rocket boosters producing 8.8 million pounds of thrust to launch the agency's Orion spacecraft to the Moon. NASA will test the rocket's 212-foot tall core stage- the tallest rocket stage the agency has ever built- with a "Green Run" test on Earth before launch day to help ensure mission success and pave the way for future Artemis missions carrying crew to the Moon. Missions at the Moon will be a stepping stone to prepare for human exploration of Mars."
