At this time all three NASA-TVs are rebroadcasting the announcement of the secondary science and technology missions for the first flight of the SLS. CubeSats will be included. SLS is designed to bring human beings farther than we've ever traveled, and farther than we've traveled in over four decades.

Today at 3pm CDT both NASA-TV will broadcast a live test firing of the RS-25 engine. This engine powered the Space Shuttle during its thirty years of service. The sixteen RS-25's inventoried for the Space Launch System were built by Aerojet Rocketdyne in Sacramento.
