Demonstration tests underway in Prague using sustainable fuels have provided initial insights to the joint teams of CVUT, GE and Avio Aero, who are now aiming to run with 100% SAF. A little over two months passed since last November, when GE Aviation Turboprop and the Czech Technical University in Prague CVUT started […]
NASA officials said Tuesday they are standing down from a cryogenic loading test on the agency's Space Launch System moon rocket until after the launch of a commercial crew mission from a neighboring pad at the Kennedy Space Center. A countdown test Monday was delayed by what NASA managers characterized as minor issues, including a liquid oxygen temperature concern and a manual valve that was left in the wrong configuration before teams evacuated the SLS launch pad.
