SLS passes review, but…

Now is scheduled for a first launch of Nov 2018, and likely $400 million behind schedule. So really a year behind schedule and already 3.5% over budget, after only three years of development.

I predict at least another year slip and another $500m before it is finally launched. It will lift more than anything out there now, but by the time of its first launch in…2020 I’ll call it…SpaceX’s super lift rocket may be operational or close to it.
