1. Not true. Just because a big rocket exists doesn't mean it could be used.1. Would give new life to space-based lasers---but also for space-based radars, astronomy--solar powersats---and more.
2. Of course, Ares V could have launched an even bigger one:
3. SLS can pick up the slack since Elon seems more interested in adding to his rocket garden--while we KNOW the next SLS cores will fly.
SLS is why you even have Clipper—so that’s debunked.
c. Irrelevant SLS flew SuperHeavy full stack hasn’t.
Just because you hate on MSFC and SLS doesn’t make you right either.
One of the other pictures shows protective petals around the end, were they just for launch, or intended to protect from debris?
Also, why is it in two pieces? Too heavy for single LV at the time?
