NASA is considering launching a living, human crew on the first integrated flight of the new Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft currently scheduled for late 2018. While most of NASA’s crewed spacecraft have had their initial launches unmanned or with (adorable) non-human animals, this is not unheard of, as…
NASA’s Space Launch System rocket will be the most powerful booster humans have ever created. And to power that rocket, you need on big-ass tank of liquid hydrogen built with the largest welding machine ever made.
NASA wants to chip off a big piece of a near-earth asteroid so that it can send a manned mission to retrieve samples without having to fly outside the moon’s orbit to do so. The only problem is that they need to know composition and strength of what they are about to chip away. This is where Honeybee Robotics thinks…
NASA hasn’t sent humans into space on its own spacecraft since the Space Shuttle orbiters retired, so they really want to be sure things are working properly before astronauts climb aboard the next-generation Orion capsule. Earlier today, NASA simulated a “Minimum System Test” in which some of Orion’s parachutes were…
Affalterbach. The grand finale: the SLS AMG GT FINAL EDITION brings an impressive era to an end in exclusive style.
Whilst at Silverstone the other day we spotted this rather sexy beast! About £340k worth of kit...the team wasnt around, but i think they would have heard me start it up haha.
Luckily you don't have to actually put the key in, ever. So I guess it's not that stupid.
There's nothing like track time to see what a supercar is made of. That's why I was optimistic that, not only had Mercedes and AMG re-worked the SLS for 2013, but also they invited me to the track to drive it. They say it's faster, sharper, more responsive, and will return more feedback to the driver than the…
The Mercedes SLS AMG Black is the Four Loko of supercars: A hyped up adrenaline beast that will definitely kill you if you use it incorrectly.
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Just because you can afford a powerful and fancy car doesn't mean you have the skills to drive one.
Thanks to those last few millions of barrels of oil you can finally buy that tuned SLS you've had your eye on. Time to take it to the dyno, and why not sit in the trunk as it shoots flames?
In spite of its old-school design, the gullwing Mercedes SLS AMG attracts some of the most "cutting edge" owners, such as this fashionable lady in Shanghai sporting some frowny face diaper pants.
If you're going to buy a $200,000 sports car like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, what's the point in settling for a base model? Perhaps this is the thinking behind the company only selling the new, more powerful SLS AMG GT in the United States during the 2013 model year.
Taking a Nissan GT-R to race a bunch of exotic supercars is beating a dead horse at this point. But what about its tall-boy equally-well-endowed brother, the Juke R?
The Mercedes C63 AMG wagon is the Medical Car of choice for the 2011 Formula One Championship and it has never looked, or for that matter, sounded better.
Media-baiting setup or not, watching Nico Rosberg hot-lap the Nürburgring in the rain (after having had only one ride-along lap — from Michael Schumacher) with a terrified David Coulthard in the right seat is worth the branding cynicism.
