During a record-breaking June 8 test, engineers throttled the J-2X powerpack up and down several times to explore numerous operating points required for the fuel and oxidizer turbopumps. The results of this test will be useful for determining performance and hardware life for the J-2X engine turbopumps. The J-2X engine will power the upper stage of the evolved NASA¹s Space Launch System, an advanced heavy-lift rocket that will provide an entirely new national capability for human exploration...

Testing of the next-generation J-2X rocket engine continues to set standards. Last fall, the engine attained 100 percent power in just its fourth test and became the fastest U.S. rocket engine to achieve a full-flight duration test, hitting that 500-second mark in its eighth test. On, May 25, NASA recorded another first during a 40-second test of the engine on the A-2 Test Stand at John C. Stennis Space Center. For the first time, test conductors fired the J-2X in both the secondary and primary...

The shake, rattle and roar lasted just seven seconds, but the short J-2X test conducted May 16 at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center moved the space agency closer to a return to deep space. NASA operators tested the next-generation J-2X engine on the A-2 Test Stand at Stennis to collect early data on performance of the engine and test stand with the new nozzle extension and clamshell configuration. The test also provided data on startup and shutdown processes. (NASA/SSC)

This Chandra X-ray video shows the elements distribution in supernova remnant Cas A. The distributions of sulfur, silicon, magnesium and neon are similar. Oxygen, which according to theoretical models is the most abundant element in the remnant, is difficult to detect because the X-ray emission characteristic of oxygen ions is strongly absorbed by gas in along the line of sight to Cas A, and because almost all the oxygen ions have had all their electrons stripped away.

NASA recently performed a trial run on a rocket sled test fixture, powered by rockets, to replicate the forces a supersonic spacecraft would experience prior to landing. The sled tests will allow the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator Project, or LDSD, to test inflatable and parachute decelerators to slow spacecraft prior to landing and allow NASA to increase landed payload masses, improve landing accuracy and increase the altitude of safe landing-sites.

The author/director of this creative piece is Paul Gradl who works on the J-2X development effort. A superb engineer with a technical background in combustion devices design and analysis, he came up with the notion of stringing together the J-2X development process starting with conceptual design, then detailed design and analysis, through fabrication and assembly, and finally into full-scale hot-fire testing. The result is truly excellent.

This video shows the motion of Comet Ikeya-Murakami on Nov. 13, 2010, captured with a New Mexico-based telescope operated remotely by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. The images were taken near dawn and show the comet's movement over a period of 45 minutes. Each exposure was three minutes in length, and the faint angled streak around 0:10 in the animation is a satellite trail. At the time of these images, the comet was some 229 million miles away from Earth. Comet Ikeya-Murakami was...

This animation shows how a black hole may have formed in SN 1979C. The collapse of a massive star is shown, after it has exhausted its fuel. A flash of light from a shock breaking through the surface of the star is then shown, followed by a powerful supernova explosion. The view then zooms into the center of the explosion.

How do you chill down 1.4 million pounds of solid rocket fuel in the hot Utah desert? Lots of air conditioning! Learn how ATK chilled down DM-2, the second Ares first stage development motor in advance of the August 31 static test. DM-2 is a "cold motor" test with the mean motor temperature at 40 degrees for the two-minute test.

This video shows a compilation of events seen during the peak of the 2010 Perseid meteor shower on Aug. 13, 2010, over Huntsville, Ala. The shower began around July 17, peaked August 12-13 and will be officially over by August 24. The Perseids have been observed for at least 2,000 years and are associated with the comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Video: NASA/MSFC/D. Moser, NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office

This July, a summer intern took video using a flip-cam. The video depicts the James Webb Space Telescope mirrors being moved out of the X-Ray and Cryogenics facility. If you're wondering why it's so shaky -- that's because the process actually takes much longer than what is shown, the video is (in most parts) sped up by 150-200%

On the night of August 3 at 9:56 p.m. a Perseid meteor -- about 1 inch in diameter and moving at a speed of 134,000 mph -- entered the atmosphere 70 miles above the town of Paint Rock, Ala. At such a tremendous velocity, the meteor cut a path some 65 miles long, finally burning up 56 miles above Macay Lake, just northeast of the town of Warrior. The meteor was about six times brighter than the planet Venus and would be classified as a fireball by meteor scientists. The Perseid radiant was low...

Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. successfully tested a sub-scale solid rocket motor on May 27. Testing a sub-scale version of a rocket motor is a cost-effective way to evaluate new materials, technologies or processes, and rapidly assess performance. Data from the 21-second test will be evaluated to better understand the performance of a new nozzle configuration, processes and materials.

A legacy of smoke and fire is celebrated in the May episode of "Focus on Marshall." The "Focus on Marshall" team traveled to Promontory, Utah, for the final ground test of a space shuttle solid rocket motor in February. The test was conducted to ensure the safe fly-out of the remaining space shuttle missions. A total of 43 design objectives were measured through 258 instrument channels during the two-minute static firing. Hear from Marshall Center managers as they reflect on...

Under a brilliant early morning Arizona sky, NASA conducted a successful, record-breaking test of a drogue parachute being designed to return next-generation space vehicles safely to Earth. The 77,000-pound payload used in the test was dropped from the back of a U.S. Air Force C-17 at an altitude of 25,000 feet, setting a record for the heaviest single load ever extracted out of a C-17 during flight. NASA conducted the drop test, April 14, at the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Ground near Yuma, Ariz.

Pull cord, deploy chute. Sounds simple, right? For the Ares I-X team the trick was in that "pull cord" step. After a thorough root cause analysis, NASA has pinpointed the likely culprit behind the Ares I-X parachute system anomaly -- an errant cord yank that caused one reefing line pyro charge to fire prematurely while still in the parachute pack. During the Ares I-X suborbital flight, the packed parachutes shook and shimmied inside the vehicle. Engineers believe the pack dynamics...
