Get Excited! Be sure mark your calendar! During this flight, the spacecraft will launch on the most powerful rocket in the world and fly farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown. It will travel 280,000 miles from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon over the course of about a four to six-week mission.

Explore the SLS Elements! NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) is the most powerful rocket NASA has ever built. It is the only rocket that can send the Orion spacecraft, astronauts, and supplies beyond Earth’s orbit to the Moon on a single mission. Each major element of SLS – the core stage, RS-25 engines, solid rocket boosters,  interim cryogenic propulsion stage, launch vehicle stage adapter, and Orion stage adapter – serves a unique purpose – you can explore them all here!

The Crew Behind the Uncrewed Mission The first flight of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft will not have a crew of astronauts on board, but there are several experienced teams of people behind the mission to ensure the success of the first SLS launch and Orion’s first trip around the Moon. Read about them here!
