Following the awarding of the contract, a Preliminary Design Review was carried out in September 1972, followed by a Critical Design Review in September 1976 after which the engine's design was set and construction of the first set of flight-capable engines began. Final review of all the Space Shuttle's components, including the engines, was conducted in 1979. The design reviews operated in parallel with several test milestones, initial tests consisting of individual engine components which identified shortcomings with various areas of the design, including the HPFTP, HPOTP, valves, nozzle and fuel preburners. The individual engine component tests were followed by the first test of a complete engine (0002) on 16 March 1977. NASA specified that, prior to the Shuttle's first flight, the engines must have undergone at least 65,000 seconds of testing, a milestone that was reached on 23 March 1980, with the engine having undergone 110,253 seconds of testing by the time of STS-1 both on test stands at Stennis Space Center (John C. Stennis Space Center) and installed on the Main Propulsion Test Article (MPTA-098) (MPTA). The first set of engines (2005, 2006 and 2007) were delivered to Kennedy Space Center in 1979 and installed on Founded on March 30, 1910, the university is a dual campus institution, with the main campus located in Hattiesburg and the Gulf Coast campus located in Long Beach (Long Beach, Mississippi) http: www.usm.edu gc .

Stennis Space Center Stennis Space Center (File:SSME test A-1.ogv). alt A video showing RS-25 testing. The video opens with a night view of a large scaffold structure (the test stand), lit with internal lights. The view then switches to show the nozzle of a rocket engine, mounted within the structure, lighting and beginning to fire. The view then cuts back to the view of the scaffold, from which large amounts of steam are now billowing out of, towards the right of the frame. Wide and close-up views of this plume follow, before the view switches back to the engine nozzle, which shuts down. The history of the RS-25 traces back to the 1960s when NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and Rocketdyne were conducting a series of studies on high-pressure engines, developed from the successful J-2 engine (J-2 (rocket engine)) used on the S-II and S-IVB upper stages of the Saturn V rocket during the Apollo program. The studies were conducted under a program to upgrade the Saturn V engines, which produced a design for a 350,000 lb f (pound (force)) upper-stage engine known as the HG-3 (HG-3 (rocket engine)). When the problem reoccurred, NASA ran a fuel test, which led them to believe the problem lied in the faulty connector. The connector was then removed from the tank and taken to Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) in Huntsville (w:Huntsville, Alabama), Alabama, where it is currently undergoing extensive analysis and modification. The new connector is scheduled to be installed by January 10. At the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) activities will focus on their slogan for Earth Day 2009, "Just One Drop ... PRICELESS" and will demonstrate how the Environmental Control Life Support System (w:Life support system) operates as used on the International Space Staton (w:International Space Station) (ISS).
