From:  News Release   1/13/2020   GCN

 

The core stage for NASA’s Artemis program is now at the Stennis Space Center where it will undergo a series of tests called Green Run.

 

During Green Run, the rocket’s massive, 212-foot-tall core stage — the same flight hardware that will send Artemis 1 to the Moon — will operate together for the first time for eight minutes, simulating an actual launch.

The core stage design will be used for all configurations of the SLS rocket, and these tests will verify the stage is ready for the first and future Artemis missions.
