NASA powered up the core stage of its new Space Launch System on Saturday (Dec. 5), kicking off the penultimate "green run" test of its next-generation megarocket, according to agency officials. For this "wet dress" rehearsal exercise, engineers at NASA's Stennis Space Center in Mississippi planned to load up the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket's core stage with propellant for the first time, a process that began Monday (Dec. 7) and was expected to last about 48 hours, NASA officials wrote in a blog post. That fueling process began on schedule, but NASA engineers paused shortly after it began to allow time for more analysis.
