NASA Is About to Launch Its Most Powerful Rocket Ever With a Few Surprises Onboard

NASA is planning to launch its new Space Launch System, with the Orion capsule designed to host astronauts perched atop the rocket, on August 29.

It would be a major first step in the space agency’s efforts to get humans back to the surface of the Moon for the first time since 1972.

The SLS mega rocket plans to fly the crew capsule all the way around the Moon – farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown – before heading back for a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.

Here are some of the cool and colorful cargo slated to make the journey to the Moon and back.
