Space Launch System: Tooling Up to Build the World's Largest Rocket

A wrench and hammer might be good for some building projects, but the nuts and bolts found in a standard garage toolbox definitely wouldn't hit the nail on the head when it comes to constructing a 321-foot, 5.5 million-pound rocket.

That's why engineers at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans are installing massive tools -- one more than 170 feet tall -- specifically designed and built to weld together pieces of the core stage of the Space Launch System (SLS) -- NASA's new heavy-lift rocket that will send humans to deep space destinations, including an asteroid and Mars.
