#DYK#NorthropGrumman technicians use upgraded industrial mixers to create the propellant for the boosters for NASA's Space Launch System? It takes 40 of these bowls (280k pounds) to fill one booster segment!
The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket, with Cygnus resupply spacecraft onboard, launched from Pad-0A, Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. After arriving at the International Space Station, the Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo ship was bolted into place on the station’s Earth-facing port of the Unity module. The spacecraft will spend about three months attached to the space station before departing in February 2019. After it leaves, the uncrewed spacecraft will deploy several CubeSats before its fiery re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere as it disposes of several tons of trash.

@Regran_ed from @northropgrumman - #NorthropGrumman technicians prepare the NASA Orion launch abort motor for next Thursday’s test fire at our facility in Promontory, Utah. The motor is currently being conditioned for the test, meaning it will be cooled to approximately 27 degrees F, which will help engineers determine how the system will react in colder temperatures. - #regrann
The inert Common Boost Segment forward segment recently made the trip to the Promontory Test Area T-97 facility for motor assembly pathfinder efforts (aka, checkout for static test). CBS motors will be used to boost #NorthropGrumman 's #OmegaRocket to space!

#NASA 's James Webb Space Telescope is both large and heavy, so it requires some big equipment to move it from one place to another during testing. 🌟The sunshield on the #Webb telescope is 70 feet by 48 feet, or roughly the size of a tennis court. Once it and the attached spacecraft bus are combined with the telescope element, with its mirrors and science instruments, Webb will weigh almost 14,000 pounds, which is about as much as a full-size school bus.🌟In this photo, taken at @NorthropGrumman in Los Angeles, California, engineers were lifting the flight spacecraft element or SCE (consisting of the spacecraft bus and sunshield) off of the “elephant stand” upon which it was assembled. The SCE was then placed onto the In-Plant Transporter (IPT) for a carriage ride from the big cleanroom to the acoustics facility in another building. Once those acoustic tests were completed, Webb took another carriage ride to the vibration and thermal-vacuum facility in another building. After all the testing is completed, one more carriage ride will return it to this cleanroom where it will be assembled with the telescope element to form the full-up observatory that will fly in space.🌟Image credit: #NorthropGrumman 🌟#jameswebbspacetelescope#jwst
