INTERNET VIEWING ALERT - Let's Light This Candle - 3/11/15 11:00 a.m. EDT

Hey Space Placers!

Tomorrow (3/11/15) at 11:00 a.m. EDT you will want to tune in to NASA TV to watch the live test firing of NASA's newest Solid Rocket Booster (SRB). The test, QM-1, will last two minutes and be a full up firing of the new and improved and more powerful SRB that will be used to launch NASA's Space Launch System (SLS).

As Al Shepard said, "Let's Light This Candle!" This will be something to hear and see as 3.6 MILLION pounds of thrust blast into the Utah desert.
