The SLS rocket was successfully launched for the first mission of the Artemis program, which is aimed at astronauts landing on the moon in 2025.
NASA plans to send astronauts to the Moon and then to Mars by 2025 as part of the Artemis mission.
Getting help from space companies such as SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Dynetics in this challenging mission, NASA aims to make journeys safe with its own giant rocket called “SLS”.
It has been delayed many times so far.
NASA has tried to launch the SLS rocket, of which it has completed its rehearsals, twice before from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. However, the fuel problem and storms in the rocket’s engine caused the mission to be delayed several times.
NASA has successfully launched its giant SLS rocket into space after weeks of technical setbacks and bad weather. The SLS rocket will place the Orion spacecraft on it into lunar orbit for a 42-day mission.
As part of the mission, which will be the first leg of the Artemis program, NASA will use the SLS rocket, the most powerful launch rocket system to date, and the Orion spacecraft, in which the astronauts will be aboard. However, the SLS rocket will operate without astronauts, as it will be for reconnaissance purposes only.
