Stennis operators have been modifying their E-1 Test Stand since last April for the AJ26 engines. Work has included construction of a 27-foot-deep flame deflector trench. The AJ26 Aerojet engines will power Orbital’s Taurus II space launch vehicle for missions to supply the International Space Station. (Source: NASA, 02/24/10)
