NASA’s Colossal SLS Rocket on Track for 2018 Test, with Tiny Hitchhikers

[The WIRE] A bigger variant will stand at 117 metres and be able to lift 130 tons to the low-Earth orbit (to compare, India’s GSLV Mk-III stands at 44 metres and lifts 8 tons to the LEO). NASA hopes to use it to ferry humans to Mars in the 2030s.
