NASA shows new space vehicle

After the space shuttle, a new era lies ahead for NASA. They plan to bring new astronauts further in space, a new goal, called planet Mars.

The new space rocket looks very similar to the first rockets NASA developed, but they have combined the 2 space vehicles. Now you can find two booster rockets on the sides of the main tank. The rockets shall be driven by liquid hydrogen and oxygen. The first rockets have a capacity of 77 to 100 tons, but they plan on rising it to 130 tons.

The main difference between the Space Shuttle and the new Space Rocket, is that the space Rocket has a very limited lifetime. It can only be used once. This was because the maintenance of the Space Shuttle where very high. NASA hopes to test the rockets from 2017.
