Thanks for the video. Sorta got choked uP when I watched it
It was kind of sad seeing it go...the end of our space program correct?
This is in no way the end of our Space Explorations. It is just the
beginning of a new era of Deeper Space Exploration.

That Muscle-Car is great for those who prefer just cruising around town looking cool, but it's about time we ventured onward a lil further than
[color=7BD1CB]On Sept. 14, 2011, NASA announced a new capability for America's space program: a heavy-lift rocket designed to carry the Orion
spacecraft and send astronauts farther into space than ever before. And now, one year later, NASA has made swift progress improving on existing
hardware, testing and developing new components, and paving the way for a new launch vehicle. The SLS will make human exploration of deep space a
reality and create new possibilities for scientific discovery.
[color=7BD1CB]"The SLS is a national capability and will be the largest rocket ever built, providing the power we need to truly explore beyond our
current limits," said Todd May, Space Launch System program manager. "Not only will it take us beyond low Earth orbit, but it will take us there

[color=7BD1CB]"Our goal was to become a leaner and more efficient program, based on lessons learned from previous successes by the agency," May
said. "But even more important is to build a safe vehicle for our astronauts and one that can sustain exploration for years to come. That takes time
and we're off to a great start. We want to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers."
[color=7BD1CB]The SLS initially will be capable of carrying 70 metric tons to space. A larger, future version of the rocket will launch up to 130
metric tons -- equivalent to about 75 sport utility vehicles -- to future destinations such as an asteroid, near-lunar space and, eventually,
