Boeing builds the most powerful rocket ever made


Boeing builds a Rocket

What does it mean to be the most powerful ever? Well, Boeing certainly can soon lay claim to that prestigious mantle. Jackie Nesselroad who is leading the team from Boeing on a mission to build the most powerful rocket in the world. Inside the Michoud Assembly Facility lies the world’s largest welding system in the world. Housed within the mammoth 800+ acre space park built by NASA just outside of the great city of New Orleans, the nearly 200 feet tall metal frame is being worked prepared to hopefully launch the world’s most powerful rocket soon. Christened the SLS, the rocket will have one end game in mind: Mars or bust.

The SLS is designed for deep space travel and will not be reusable like Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin. With the program expected to cost billions of dollars, the SLS will be tasked with first carrying a crew to the far side of the moon which is farther than any other manned mission before. NASA was awarded over $2 billion dollars by Congress for the SLS mission with almost the entirety of the funding directly to Boeing for the core rocket they are going to build. With over 8 million pounds of thrust-force powered by oxygen fuel tanks and liquid hydrogen, it is a massive undertaking. "Mars is a million times further away than the space station," marvels senior manager for test and evaluation, Paul Wright at Boeing. With so much risk and so much space to explore NASA feels it needs to own this mission as opposed to riding on the coat tail of SpaceX. With Movies like “The Martian” reigniting the excitement and recapturing the imagination of the American people, the public is in ardent fervor of the SLS program which will help immensely in voting for future funding. Suddenly science fiction has now become science faction.
