Second SLS Green Run Test Planned

Green Run Update: NASA Proceeds With Plans for Second Hot Fire Test

"NASA plans to conduct a second Green Run hot fire test as early as the fourth week in February with the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket's core stage that will launch the Artemis I mission to the Moon. The Green Run is a comprehensive assessment of the rocket's core stage prior to launching Artemis missions."

SLS Green Run Update, earlier post

Keith's note: FYI this event in Huntsville is coming up on 17 February - a few days before the second SLS Green Run test. The Path to Artemis III: Future of Human Deep Space Exploration. Given that the 2024 landing date is now open to reconsideration it will be interesting to see how much of the old rah rah spin the NASA MSFC, congressional, and industry folks put on this event and its Trump administration accelerated milestone.
