NASA's 70-metric-ton Space Launch System (SLS) is poised to be the rocket that will take us to Mars and beyond. An aerodynamics team at the Langley Research Center recently tested a model of the SLS in the Transonic Dynamics Tunnel to measure the tremendous static and dynamic forces that will be exerted on the vehicle during launch.
