How terrible is the rocket that will bring people to Mars?

NASA, the US Aerospace Agency recently released a video recording of the test of the most powerful RS-25 engine in history. RS-25 is the engine of the future mounted on the Orion cruise ship, which will take people to Mars.

NASA, the US Aerospace Agency recently released a video recording of the test of the most powerful RS-25 engine in history. RS-25 is the engine of the future mounted on the Orion cruise ship, which will take people to Mars.

The RS-25 has a propulsion force of 226 tons and will take Orion ships more than 45,000 km from the Apollo rocket's old boosters, which took Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to set foot on the moon in 1969.

The new Orion ship has a similar design to Apollo but is 2.5 times larger, the inside is equipped with more advanced technologies. Orion will have a diameter of 5m and weigh about 25 tons, can carry four astronauts and carry plenty of furniture, enough to meet space life for 450 days of astronauts if they go to Stars Fire.

In order to evaluate the performance of RS-25 boosters, scientists tested the new engine with 109% of the design capacity. If successful, they will test the missiles and shoot next year.

When the four RS-25 engines were tested, a powerful storm like a hurricane came out with a huge explosion.

The powerful power of the new rocket engine was shot in many different angles.

NASA tested the RS-25 engine for 500 seconds in March 2016 and is expected to create a "leap" in the exploration of the universe.

To realize the dream of conquering Mars, besides the new rocket propulsion engine, NASA is also considering building a Space Ship Launch System (SLS).
