Taking more humans to space can be quite tricky and expensive to achieve.

This is the reason why only several qualified astronauts can visit and have space exploration that is mainly authorized by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA

However, NASA seemed to be recently completed a massive rocket project that aims to take more humans to Moon in the following years to come.

Through NASA's program called the Space Launch System or SLS, this 'mega-rocket' project of NASA is taller than a 30-story building that was placed, on Wednesday, to a huge barge that will be sent to its next destination for other testings. 

The first core stage was made at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana, that will soon be transferred to Mississippi to undergo other more comprehensive tests before its official launching that is still set in the year 2024. 

The SLS is part of NASA's Artemis Program that aims to provide larger rocket in order for more individuals to reach Moon. 

As of now, the mega-rocket has to be tested first with more tests, but once these are completed, SLS will soon be termed as the 'most powerful rocket in the world' -- challenging the historic Saturn V rocket that was used by NASA on years between 1967 and 1973.
