Live coverage: Falcon Heavy test-firing planned Wednesday

When's the last time anybody ever test fired 5 million+ pounds of thrust?  The only two examples that come to mind are the 5 F-1s tests for Apollo and the AJ260 solid motor.

The AJI jet trainer proposal looked like most of a Hustler airframe with the turboprop removed. The cockpit was redesigned to semi-bubble more like T-37 Tweety Bird or Canadair Tutor.

Rocket Lab launch also tested new kick stage

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. Ė The successful launch of Rocket Labís Electron rocket Jan. 20 also tested a kick stage designed to circularize the orbits of its satellite payloads.

The company said Jan. 23 that the Electron carried a kick stage for the two Lemur-2 cubesats it launched for Spire. The kick stage separated from the Electronís upper stage and, after a 40-minute coast phase, fired an engine called Curie to circularize its orbits before releasing the cubesats.
