NASA getting SLS megarockets ready for crewed moon missions

The giant rockets that will take NASA astronauts to the Moon a few years from now are starting to appear together.

In a brief status update published Tuesday (January 11), NASA officials wrote that the agency and its manufacturing partners have made “significant progress” in assembling a Space Launch System (SLS) rocket for Artemis 2, a manned crew orbiting the Moon. The mission is scheduled to take off in 2024. The testing and fabrication of SLS parts is also underway for the Artemis 3 lunar landing mission, which is now scheduled no later than 2025, and its successor, Artemis 4.
