Huntsville, AL – The largest rocket stage in the world is coming together piece by piece at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, LA. Large elements for NASA’s Space Launch System are in production and will be joined together to create the rocket’s 212-foot-tall core stage, the backbone of the SLS rocket.
Why is NASA building the world’s most powerful rocket? Because SLS is ready to support both near-term missions in the proving ground around the moon starting in 2018, while at the same time being capable of carrying the very large hardware like landers, habitats and other supplies and equipment needed to explore Mars and other deep space destinations in the 2030s and beyond.
Nashville, TN – Sunday afternoon’s game between the Nashville Sounds and New Orleans Zephyrs has been cancelled due to rain at Zephyr Field in New Orleans.

Game one is scheduled for Wednesday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark at 7:05pm.
New Orleans, LA – The New Orleans Zephyrs scored a run in the seventh and three in the eighth to steal a 4-3 win over the Nashville Sounds Sunday night at Zephyr Field.
Nashville built a 3-0 lead on a strong pitching performance from Daniel Gossett and home runs from Franklin Barreto and Rangel Ravelo only to see the bullpen cough it up late.
Gossett allowed one run on three hits in 6 2/3 innings and was in line for the win in his second career Triple-A start before the ‘pen faltered.
New Orleans, LA – Matt Chapman’s three-homer game wasn’t enough for the Nashville Sounds in a 6-5 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs Saturday night at Zephyr Field.
Chapman hit a home run in each of his first three at bats to become the seventh player in Sounds (83-58) history to hit three in a single game. The 23-year-old has seven home runs in 17 games with the Sounds and 36 in 134 games between Nashville and Double-A Midland.
The last three-homer game by a Sounds player was Russell Branyan who also did it against New Orleans on May 16th, 2008. Others to accomplish the feat include Ryan Braun, Craig Wilson, Darnell Coles, Dan Pasqua and Steve Balboni.
Nashville, TN – Friday night’s game between the Nashville Sounds and New Orleans Zephyrs has been cancelled due to rain at Zephyrs Park in New Orleans.
The two teams played into the top of the third inning before rain brought the game to a halt. The lone run scored came in the second when Bryan Anderson’s sacrifice fly brought home Renato Nunez to give the Sounds a 1-0 lead.
With the regular season coming to an end Monday, the game will not be resumed and official statistics from tonight’s game will not count.
NASA’s Stennis Space Center
Bay St. Louis, MS – NASA engineers successfully conducted a development test of the RS-25 rocket engine Thursday, August 18th at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The RS-25 will help power the core stage of the agency’s new Space Launch System (SLS) rocket for the journey to Mars.
A variety of NASA officials and contractor representatives, as well as social and traditional media members, gathered to watch the 420-second test of RS-25 engine No. 0528. NASA is developing the SLS to send humans further into deep space than they have ever traveled, including on the journey to Mars.

Greenbelt, MD – The low pressure center that has been gyrating over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico for days has now dropped very heavy precipitation over southeastern Louisiana. The Global Precipitation Measurement mission, or GPM, core satellite gathered rainfall data on the system and looked at it in three dimensions.
Up to 10 inches (254 mm) of rain since Thursday, August 11th, has already caused flooding in parts of the state. On August 12th the National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings for many parts of southeastern Louisiana. Much of the New Orleans area is under a flood watch until Saturday morning, August 13th.
