NASA has unveiled the rocket that will take us to Mars

Say hello to NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) — it’s about to become the largest, most powerful space rocket we’ve ever built.
The Agency announced a design for the rocket earlier today, saying it will be a “safe, affordable and sustainable means of reaching beyond our current limits and opening up new discoveries from the unique vantage point of space.” Buckle up, everybody — we’re going to Mars.
