The Virgin flight may have, but, the article states that the New Origins flight burns hydrogen and oxygen, the worst it could do is make it rain, no carbon.

This is where SLS shines, being a hydrolox burner.
In fact, there were plans to have a version with no Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB-free)!

Have a look:

Part One

Part 2

The largest version

Now, this last one is of note. I'm thinking you could adapt this last version to reusability by having landing legs between the cores at the cost of some payload...so you won't be throwing tankage away....with the center core sliding out to orbit and being used for wet-stage ET tank stations so as to avoid heat-shields.


I think Bezos should work with Boeing on this design and get the Biden Administration to make methalox illegal with a treaty with Russia and China, so as to force all hydrogen rocketry for Solar Power construction.


Speaking of solids...imagine this monster:
