J-2X engine tested for 500 seconds

"Another key component of NASA's new Space Launch System, the J-2X rocket engine, is put to a 500-second firing test at NASA's Stennis Space Center on Nov. 9 The J-2X rocket engine will help carry the Orion spacecraft and its crew, cargo, equipment and science experiments beyond Earth orbit. The new SLS, heavy-lift rocket will be safe, affordable and sustainable, and help NASA explore deep space."

Boy I hope they actually build this rocket instead of dropping it like the last one.
