Artemis 1 SLS Rollout

NASA’s Moon Rocket Keeps on Rolling to Launch Complex 39B
“NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, with the Orion capsule atop, slowly rolls out of the Vehicle Assembly Building at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on March 17, 2022 on its journey to Launch Complex 39B.”
Costly and years late, NASA’s SLS moon rocket rolls to the launchpad for the first time, Washington Post
“Last week, NASA’s inspector general, Paul Martin, told Congress that his office had calculated the cost for the first three flights of the SLS to be $4.1 billion each, a price tag he said was “unsustainable.” In an era when SpaceX and other companies are building rockets that can be reused for multiple flights, Martin said, “relying on such an expensive, single-use rocket system will, in our judgment, inhibit if not derail NASA’s ability to sustain its long-term human exploration goals to the moon and Mars.”
