Look at this picture:
|The Four RS-25 Engines That Will Power|
The 1st Stage of Exploration Mission-1
Called Exploration Flight-1, the SLS will put an unmanned Orion spacecraft into orbit around the Earth. Upon checkout of all systems the SLS upper stage will conduct a translunar orbital insertion (TLI) burn that will put Orion on course for its 25-day mission.
Just writing this makes me excited...NASA launching its new rocket and manned spacecraft to the Moon.
I am hoping to get to see these 4 engines light on the test stand and on the launch pad. If I do, you will see it too ;-)
