Name: 2017 Space Launch System (SLS) Engine Test and Fabrication Tour
Date: May 16, 2017 - May 17, 2017
Registration: Register Now
Event Description:

We’re headed back to the Moon (and beyond), and the countdown clock is ticking toward the first launch of NASA’s biggest rocket ever! In order to help build awareness of the progress made on the development of the Space Launch System (SLS), the Chamber is arranging a tour of the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, including a test of the RS 25 engine that will provide propulsion for the core stage of the rocket. The trip will also include a tour of the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, where the Core Stage of the SLS rocket is currently being manufactured.
 
The registration fee includes bus transportation from Huntsville, lunch on the way down to the Stennis Space Center, one night’s stay at the French Quarter Ritz-Carlton Hotel, a reception, breakfast, and lunch before returning to Huntsville.

The SLS is the next step in our nation’s human exploration of deep space, carrying humans further into space than we have ever gone. It will be larger than the Saturn V rockets that carried U.S. astronauts to the Moon, and continued support for the program is critical to NASA’s success.
 
This trip is limited to U.S. citizens.
