Teams at AMRO Fabricating Corp. in South El Monte, California, show completed flight and structural test article hardware panels, arranged in order, for each section of NASA's new rocket, the Space Launch System.
SLS will be the most powerful rocket ever built and, with NASA's Orion spacecraft, will launch America into a new era of exploration to destinations beyond Earth's orbit.
AMRO is an industry partner helping build panels for the SLS core stage, launch vehicle stage adapter (LVSA) and Orion spacecraft.
The panels, above, from bottom to top, represent the SLS engine section, liquid hydrogen tank, intertank, liquid oxygen tank, forward skirt, LVSA and Orion.
