NASA is testing all its new tech for its manned mission to the Moon
- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is going to 'Green Run Test' its Artemis launch.
- The launch is integrating a lot of new technology like the tallest ever rocket stage that NASA has ever built, its RS-25 engines and the
- Jim Bridenstine, NASA's administrator, tweeted that it's better to spot any issues with Artemis 'earlier rather than later'.

This is the first time since 1972 that the US is attempting to go back to the Moon, and looks like it wants to get it right.
.@NASA will do a Green Run test for @NASA_SLS prior to #Artemis 1. Here’s why: • Astronaut safety is our #1 priori… https://t.co/3BKxaDTsl4— Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) 1564083863000
All systems go
Its 'Green Run Test' at NASA's Stennis Space Center can be broken into two parts. 'Green' refers to the new hardware that's being implemented to power the launch. And, 'run' refers to all the systems working together in sync for the first time.
The SLS core stage is an engineering feat that includes not only the largest rocket propellant tanks ever built but also sophisticated avionics and main propulsion systems.
For instance, RS-25 engine is a new technology developed by NASA. These engines were individually tested earlier this year. But, the 'Green Run Test' will have the engines working alongside the other systems required to launch Artemis into space.
"With Green Run, we verify each individual component operates well within the core stage system," states Lisa Bates, SLS deputy stages manager.
"It's more than testing. It's the first time the stage will come to life and be fully operational from the avionics in the top of the core stage to the engines at the bottom," she explains.
This is the first time since the Apollo Program shut down in 1972 that the United States is attempting to go back to the Moon. Their final and sixth manned Moon landing was Apollo 17 in December 1972.
