Why we’re excited about NASA’s new ‘Mega Moon rocket’

NASA officials have announced a late August launch date for their new “Mega Moon rocket.”

The vehicle is officially known as the Space Launch System (SLS) and is part of NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to put humans back on the moon for the first time in 50 years. NASA officials have tentatively determined this August 29 as start day for the most powerful rocket ever built to make a trip to the far side of the moon and back, Live Science previously reported. This first mission will be unmanned, but later expeditions will place the first woman and the first person of color on our lunar companion.
