Watch NASA test the most powerful rocket in the world ever on Saturday

NASA will ignite the most powerful rocket it has ever built on Saturday (January 16), though it will not get anywhere.

The test, scheduled sometime between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. EST, will be the first test at the core of the Space Launch System (SLS). This is the rocket that NASA hopes will one day lead a new generation of astronauts to the moon and handle other missions beyond the existing commercial space. As Live Science reported, it is slightly shorter than Saturn V rockets that carried Apollo astronauts to the moon, but they are more powerful. This will produce 15% more impulse during ascent and ascent compared to Saturn V.
