SLS and Orion: March 2018 Archives

Keith's note: SpaceX, Blue Origin and ULA are focusing on reusable launch technology while NASA is doing the exact opposite. What do they know that NASA does not? I realize that this is a tweet, but this has to be one of the weirdest things NASA PAO has ever said: "The first flight of #NASASLS and @NASA_Orion will go farther into deep space than any rocket has ever gone." For starters most of the SLS "rocket" will be dumped into the ocean immediately after launch or will burn up upon reentry and then pieces will land in the Pacific. Second, rockets have been sent out across our solar system - its how we send things to - and then land on Mars for example. So "rockets" have already been "farther into deep space" than SLS will likely go.
