How is Propellant Loaded into NASA’s SLS Moon Rocket?

How is Propellant Loaded into NASA’s SLS Moon Rocket?

Rocket Science in 60 Seconds gives you an inside look at work being done at NASA to explore deep space. Chandler Scheuermann is an engineer at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, where he works on the massive core stage for the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. 

In this episode, Chandler explains how teams at Kennedy Space Center in Florida load more than 730,000 gallons of super cold propellant into the propellant tanks of NASA’s Moon rocket on launch day. For more information about SLS and how it will launch the Artemis missions to the Moon, visit

The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I will be an uncrewed flight test that will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate NASA's commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.  It will travel 280,000 miles from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon over the course of about a three-week mission. Orion will stay in space longer than any ship for astronauts has done without docking to a space station and return home faster and hotter than ever before.

On the Artemis III Mission, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the surface of the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone on the way to Mars.
