Photo of the Day... Shown above is a buffet model of the Space Launch System (SLS) as it recently underwent wind tunnel testing inside the Transonic Dynamics Tunnel at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia. The model depicts the SLS' 'Block II' cargo configuration (pictured below), which will be almost 400-feet-tall in its actual form if this heavy-lift launch vehicle makes its maiden flight beyond Earth orbit as targeted by 2025.
