Space Launch System: Meet the Rocket

NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) will be the most powerful rocket in history for deep-space missions, including to an asteroid and ultimately to Mars.

explorenasa Big progress yesterday! @NASA engineers successfully conducted the second in a series of RS-25 flight controller tests on May 23, 2017, stepping closer to deep space exploration with the world’s most-powerful rocket. The test was set after a facility issue, subsequently resolved, forced rescheduling of a May 16 hot fire. The 500-second – more than eight full minutes – test on the A-1 Test Stand at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi marked another milestone toward launch…

NASA's Huge New SLS Rocket Could Power Missions Far Beyond Mars

NASA is developing the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket to take humans on deep space missions, while leaving transportation in low-Earth orbit to the private sector.

Concept art of the Space Launch System (SLS) powered by Ares rockets to carry payloads and crew into low-Earth orbit (LEO) in order to prepare for transit missions beyond Earth.  (Y'know like the moon and Mars and all that.)
