Plum Brook Station is a remote test facility for the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Plum Brook is home to the world’s largest and most powerful space environment simulation facilities including the Space Simulation Vacuum Chamber.
The Reverberant Acoustic Test Facility is the world's most powerful spacecraft acoustic test chamber, which can simulate the noise of a spacecraft launch up to 163 decibels or as loud as the thrust of 20 jet engines. The Mechanical Vibration Facility is the world's highest capacity and most powerful spacecraft shaker system, subjecting test articles to the rigorous conditions of launch.
The Orion spacecraft and its European Service Module is tested here to ensure it will withstand the extremes of spaceflight.
