NASA tested a new five-segment rocket engine in the Utah desert on September 8, 2011. According to an eyewitness, “The earth trembled. Hot air was started. The flames were so bright it was impossible to look at them”.

 

The engine called DM-2 can produce 22 million horsepower and generate over 3 million pounds of thrust. It was firmly anchored to the ground with a concrete anchor buried 40 feet (12 meters) below the surface.
