Engine tests brought to schools

LONG BEACH, Miss. – Stennis Space Center, NASA's premiere rocket engine test facility, launched a program Wednesday to beam engine tests into some schools in Mississippi and Louisiana. The program will use technology that will allow students to watch a live stream of engine testing at Stennis, including the J-2X, an engine that's part of NASA's Space Launch System program. Through the virtual visit, NASA scientists and engineers will also appear on the screen to answer student's questions. (Source: WLOX-TV, 03/26/14)
