Timelapse: Assemble a space shuttle engine

How it’s made: The main engine RS-25 of the Space Shuttle

The Aerojet Rocketdyne RS-25, otherwise known as the Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME). Four RS-25 engines will power NASA’s new rocket, the Space Launch System, on missions to deep space, including to an asteroid and ultimately to Mars. This cool timelapse shows how it is assembled by team from Aerojet Rocketdyne at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
