Stennis completes 1,000th test of shuttle engine

The A-1 test stand at Stennis Space Center in Hancock County supported its 1,000th test of a shuttle main engine Thursday.

And from NPR's "All Things Considered"
Space Shuttle Tests: Whole Lotta Quaking

When space shuttle rocket engines are tested a mile from listener Stephan Howden's office in Mississippi, strangers think it's an earthquake. Howden says it's like a train going nearby.

We hear that sound, and then Robert Siegel talks to NASA Deputy Director David Throckmorton about why NASA tests its rockets so often.

Listen to the feature report here.
