UTAH: The world’s most powerful rocket booster passed its second test-firing on the ground on Tuesday.
The rocket is now ready for its first official test launch in Florida.
The two-minute burn was the final ground test for the booster that NASA hopes will one day blast humanity off to Mars, RT reported.
The first test-firing back in March of 2015 was also successful.
The final experiment took place in the Utah desert with NASA broadcasting the proceedings live through webstream.
