SLS QM-1 completes a successful test-fire!

In the desert near Promontory, Utah, Orbital ATK test fired their latest monster rocket: Qualification Motor 1.  It’s the most powerful single rocket engine ever fired, significantly more powerful than the Shuttle SRB, and even more powerful than the five-segment SRB intended for Ares V which was test-fired at the same site a few years ago.

Awesomely powerful.  😉
