NASA Space Launch System Deep Space Rocket: SRB Aft Segment
Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1) launching in 2018! | The aft segment for a full-scale version of a five-segment solid rocket booster for NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) has been cast at Orbital ATK's facility in Promontory, Utah. SLS will be the most powerful rocket ever built for deep space missions, including to an asteroid and ultimately to Mars. The aft segment will eventually be integrated with the other four booster segments for a second booster qualification test, scheduled for 2016. The first SLS qualification test for the booster was successfully completed March 11, 2015 at Orbital ATK.

The second test will support qualification by specifically assessing performance at the cooler end of the motor’s accepted propellant temperature range. After qualification is complete, the boosters will then be ready to proceed toward the first flight of SLS. Orbital ATK is the prime contractor for the boosters.

Solid Rocket Booster Details
Length: 177 feet
Diameter: 12 feet
Weight: 1.6 million pounds each
Propellant: polybutadiene acrylonitrile (PBAN)
Thrust: 3.6 million pounds each

Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1)
NASA’s Orion stacked atop a 70 metric ton Space Launch System rocket will launch from a newly refurbished Kennedy Space Center in 2018. The uncrewed Orion will travel into Distant Retrograde Orbit, breaking the distance record reached by the most remote Apollo spacecraft, and then 30,000 miles farther out (275,000 total miles).  The mission will last 22 days and will test system readiness for future crewed operations.

When things aren't going as good as you think they could be, find the strength within to do good unto other people. You never know who could use your light. www.ThreeKeyLife.com/the-beauty-of-life/

This expanded color photo captured by our Cassini spacecraft combines images taken using ultraviolet, green and infrared filters. This expanded range of colors allows us to see differences in material and textures on Saturn’s moon Tethys. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1I4XyeZ #NASABeyond

Since witnessing a child die in a kerosene fire at home in India seven years ago, Ajaita Shah has helped cut the use of kerosene lamps in her country by selling thousands of solar lanterns, street lights, and home lighting kits.
