RS-25D engines line the wall of the Engine Processing Facility at Kennedy Space Center, Fla. The 15 engines used during the Space Shuttle Program are being transfered to Stennis Space Center, Miss., where they will be stored for future use on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System, which will carry NASA’s new Orion spacecraft, cargo, equipment and science experiments beyond low-Earth orbit.
