Overview

Taller than the Statue of Liberty, NASA SLS has got more thrust than the mighty Saturn V.  The NASA SLS (Space Launch System) is ready to return humanity to the moon... and beyond!

The NASA SLS uses proven rocket technology and existing resources. It includes modified Space Shuttle main engines for its core stage and Space Shuttle-derived solid rockets for the boosters.

The NASA SLS Block1 will generate 8.8 million pounds of thrust at lift off and has enough power to carry the Orion crew, an upper stage booster, and four astronauts to lunar orbit and back.

SLS and Orion are key components of Project Artemis, the NASA program to land the first woman and the next man on the moon within the next five years.

Designed as a modular systems of components and payloads , NASA SLS model rocket can fulfil multiple roles in the course of Project Artemis.

Subsequent Block 1B and Block 2 versions of the NASA SLS will launch landers and cargo to the moon, and later to Mars.

The Estes 1:200 scale replica of this rocket portrays the Project Artemis Block 1 configuration. This is the first in the proposed series of heavy lift launch vehicles. This advanced rocket model represents America's next generation of deep space rockets. It comes pre-assembled and pre-finished with realistic markings and features, making it launch-ready.
