Rocket Trivia: Week 4

Blast off with this month’s trivia, all about rockets, from the mighty Saturn V that propelled the first men to the Moon to SpaceX’s reusable Falcon 9! Test your knowledge below and check back next week for more fun spaceflight trivia!

What percent more thrust will NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) produce than the Saturn V at launch?

NASA's SLS
Correct! Wrong!

NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) will produce 15% more thrust than the mighty Saturn V, and 13% more thrust than the space shuttle, at launch. Once completed, the SLS will be the world's most powerful rocket, and will launch future explorers on their journey to Mars. It will eventually be capable of sending over 45 metric tons (99,000 pounds) of cargo to the Moon and beyond! SLS is part of NASA's Artemis lunar program, which also includes the Orion spacecraft and NASA's Gateway, which will one day be an orbital outpost near the Moon. Check back next week for more fun spaceflight trivia and in the meantime, don't forget to stop by our Mission Mars exhibit which features a towering, 45-foot 1/8th scale model of the SLS and the space launch system main engine, RS-25, the most efficient engine ever built.
