Antares Rocket test goes smoothly, officials say



Officials from NASA Wallops Island say the first full-power test of the upgraded Antares rocket showed some initial signs of full success.

Officials say the primary goal of this test was to observe how well the new upgrades in the engines, modified Stage 1 core, avionics, thrust vector control and pad fueling systems worked in an operational environment.

Keith Kohler from NASA Wallops Island says the Antares engineering team will review data from the test over the next two weeks in efforts to confirm that all parameters were met.
