Quotes

"From the start, testing of the J-2X engine progressed at an incredible pace and provided invaluable data" said Gary Benton, J-2X and RS-25 test project manager at Stennis
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These risk calculations were invaluable for determining high-cycle-fatigue margins of safety and in determining if risk-reduction methods such as dampers were necessary immediately, or if tests could be performed before risk-reduction hardware was ready."
...believes God­dard technologists and scientists will benefit most from collaborations with others also investigating the technology's benefits. "It's in the national inter­est to collaborate with other institutions. This is a powerful tool and we need to look at how we can implement it. For us, it's a team effort."
..."We've shown what we can accomplish here and now, we have to continue in that same manner of excellence," he explained. "We just have to stay focused on what it's all about."
