NASA’s Space Launch System rocket, nicknamed the “Jersey Shirt Cannon,” is ready to fire its first rocket in space on Wednesday.NASA is trying to launch the rocket, which has a range of around 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers), on a test mission to demonstrate the ability of the rocket to launch satellites.
The rocket is being built by Lockheed Martin, a subsidiary of Boeing Co., a United States-based aerospace company.NASA’s Space Shuttle Atlantis launched on April 20, 2003, and launched its first satellite into orbit on December 13, 2004.
This was followed by the Space Shuttle Endeavour in December 2005 and the Space Station in February 2006.
The Space Launch Vehicle (SLS) rocket was designed in the 1960s and is a powerful, heavy-lift rocket with a diameter of more than 3,000 feet (1,933 meters).
It can loft satellites weighing up to 100,000 pounds (60,000 kilograms).
The SLS rocket has already completed several launches, and has flown on four different missions.
It can reach an altitude of about 1,900 miles (2,500 kilometers) or more than 5,000,000 square miles (11,000 sq km).
In order to reach its maximum altitude, the rocket has to go through a series of maneuvers known as “snowballs.”
The rocket’s engines reach a higher pressure and thrust when they are spinning at higher speeds than normal.
The SLC-10, the first SLS launch vehicle, was launched on May 14, 2004, and had a range around 10 times larger than that of the Shuttle.SLS has also been used for the first time to test the Space Launch Complex-41 (SLC-41), a large space station at the Florida coast.
The space station has also flown in the past, with two astronauts using the SLC on the International Space Station (ISS).SLS rocket is currently being developed and is being used to launch NASA’s Orion capsule.
The space agency has also sent a rocket to the International Geophysical Year in 2020 to test its capabilities in a deep space mission.
