NASA Tests a Methane Jet Engine

Current methane engines in development produce a thrust of 7,500 pounds-force (33 kN), which is far from the 7,000,000 lbf (31 MN) needed to launch the Space Shuttle. Instead, such engines will most likely propel voyages from our moon or send robotic expeditions to other planets in the solar system.
