Rocket engine tests are always fun—and educational. We test our rocket engines as often as we can, and every test is designed to answer a different question or to explore a different facet of the system’s performance. In this video of a recent test, our hardworking engineers and technicians have increased the thrust on the NewtonThree engine—the booster stage engine for our small satellite launch vehicle, LauncherOne—by approximately 50% over what you’ve seen in previous videos we’ve released. Testing often, under many different conditions, is the best way to learn!
