On Jan.1, 2020, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted: “Making progress! The massive @NASA_SLS core stage is moving to Building 110 at the Michoud Assembly Facility in Louisiana. There it will be readied for the Pegasus barge and its trip to @NASAStennis. Thank you to the @NASA team for working through the holidays!”
NASA’s powerful new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), will send astronauts a quarter million miles from Earth to lunar orbit. The agency is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024. Through the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program, we will use innovative new technologies and systems to explore more of the Moon than ever before.
