The first hot-fire test of the J-2X power pack 1A gas generator was performed Jan. 31 on the A-1 Test Stand at Stennis Space Center. Initial indications are that all test objectives were met. The test was designed as a 3.42-second helium spin start with gas generator ignition and it went the full scheduled duration. Test conductors reported a smooth start with normal shutdown and described the event as a "good test." The test was part of the early component testing for the new J-2X...

Three main engines are installed on the Space Shuttle at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Space Shuttle Main Eengine is the most reliable and highly tested large rocket engine ever built. Using liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen as fuel, each shuttle main engine can generate between 305,000 and 512,300 pounds of thrust. The SSME's high-performance fuel turbopump generates 77,310 horsepower and its liquid oxygen turbopump produces 29,430 horsepower.

Measuring about 2 feet long and about 8 inches in diameter, the duct on the J-2X predecessor, the J-2, connected its fuel turbo pumps to the flight vehicle's upper stage run tanks. According to NASA's J-2X project manager at SSC, Gary Benton, the water tests should establish the limits of the duct's ability to withstand vibration.
