50 years after Apollo, NASA tests a new moon rocket.
NASA's new moon rocket will make its debut next week
in a high-risk test mission before astronauts travel to the skies.
The 322-foot (98-meter) rocket will aim to launch
an unmanned crew capsule into a far lunar orbit, 50 years
after NASA's famous Apollo moonshots.
If everything goes as planned, astronauts might be strapped in as early as 2024 for a lap around the moon,
with NASA hoping to land two people on the lunar surface by the end of 2025.
NASA officials warn that the six-week test mission is dangerous and could be cut short if something goes wrong.
