NASA drone technology captured never-before-seen imagery of the RS-25 engine built by Aerojet Rocketdyne while it underwent testing at NASA´s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, the company said.
This is the twelfth test of the RS-25 engine to confirm that it meets the added requirements and performance beyond what was needed to support the shuttle program. It is the first time drones have captured photos of the RS-25 engine test from above the test stand.
