NASA is set to launch the world’s largest rocket Tuesday, a test flight for the vehicle that may be used to return astronauts to the moon. The 327-foot rocket, called the Ares I-X, is set to launch at 8 a.m. from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The unmanned rocket will help NASA collect information for future missions.
The launch, which NASA is calling a test, is among four test launches of Ares I-X that will go on until 2012.
