Operators participate in a B Test Complex test control center training session in June 2019 on procedures that will be used for core stage testing. The training involved operators from Stennis Space Center, as well as NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility, Aerojet Rocketdyne and The Boeing Company as they prepare to test the Space Launch Center core stage on the B-2 Test Stand at Stennis in 2020.
A young visitor collects a memento during activities hosted July 20, 2019, by Stennis Space Center and INFINITY Science Center to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that carried the first humans to the surface of the Moon.
A practice lift of a Space Launch System (SLS) core stage “spider” component in July 2019 offers a panoramic view of the A Test Complex and its A-1, A-2 and A-3 stands at Stennis Space Center. NASA is building the new SLS rocket to return humans to the Moon and, eventually, travel to Mars.
The Space Launch System (SLS) core stage pathfinder replica is shown installed on the B-2 Test Stand at Stennis Space Center following an Aug. 23-24, 2019, lift and handling exercise. The pathfinder is a size-and-weight replica of the actual SLS core stage, which will be installed and tested on the B-2 Test Stand in 2020. It was used to practice lifting and handling techniques prior to arrival of the actual core stage.
