NASA is closer to getting a special rocket off the ground.

It's called the Space Launch System or the SLS.

Wednesday they approved the heavy lift, exploration class rocket that will take people beyond earth's orbit to mars.

The baseline price to develop this rocket is a little more than seven billion dollars.

NASA has also projected an initial SLS flight no later than November 2018.
