Hot-testing a 54.000 lb rocket is cool!
posted March 19 2011 20:41.30 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne has completed a series of hot-fire tests of the 52,000-54,000lb-thrust Bantam demonstration engine for a "pusher" launch abort system on Boeing's CST-100 spacecraft, under design for NASA's Commercial Crew Development program. The motor "pushes" the spacecraft to safety if a launch is aborted. The tests were conducted in the California desert. Watch the following video to feel the raw power of these engines!
