    Interviews with Engineers Brian Maynard and Jim Paulsen


    The RS-25 Engine is one of the most reliable rocket engines in the world, and four of them will power NASA's next project, Orion to propel human beings into space, perhaps to Mars or back to the moon. One engine was tested on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at Stennis which is near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Stennis has being testing rocket engines since the 1960's.


    These videos are of engineer Brian Maynard, and of Vice President, Program Execution for Advanced Space and Launch Programs Jim Paulsen who head the RS-25 Engine program. The interviews were conducted during an all day press conference and tour of the Stennis Space Center for Media and Social Media representitives on Thursday, August 13, 2015. The tour included the assembly building but were were not permitted to record or photograph anything in there due to security regulations.


    Please note these are completely unedited "raw video" so there are some shooting errors in them. I will post the edited version soon but wanted to get these up so people could watch them.
