How many pounds of thrust does the SLS 70 ton configuration produce?


8.4 million pounds of thrust. That is more than 31 times the total thrust of a 747 jet and equivalent to 160,000 Corvette engines. The heavy-lift rocket will be the most powerful rocket ever developed, reducing deep space mission time and costs.
