According to foreign media reports, there is nothing like a huge rocket booster that spews flames and then violently resists gravity. Before these beasts can enter space, they must be extensively tested on the ground. NASA shared an exciting live broadcast on Wednesday, local time, showing key tests of the agency’s powerful space launch system (SLS) booster. The SLS is under development as the main rocket of NASA’s Artemis lunar project. NASA plans to send humans back to their favorite nearby space rock, the moon, by 2024. < / P > < p > NASA TV broadcast the test site from Northrop Grumman in promontory, Utah. As you can see, there lies a complete SLS booster. The test began at 12:05 p.m. Pacific time on September 2. The main purpose of this flight support booster-1 test is to confirm the engine performance and manufacturing quality of potential new materials and processes, NASA said. In addition, the agency has begun to study space missions beyond the moon, including Mars missions. < / P > < p > it is reported that the booster performed well during the two minute test. As NASA points out, “the SLS solid rocket booster is the largest and most powerful booster ever built for flight.” The agency also points out that the exhaust gas from these tests is so hot that the sand in the desert becomes glass. NASA will now evaluate the data to improve the system. < / P > < p > the SLS will be equipped with dual boosters, which will have considerable impact during launch. NASA hopes the system will pass the unmanned Artemis 1 test, which will fly around the moon with the Orion capsule. Although the agency has not yet set a launch date, it should not be until the end of 2021. Global Tech
