GAO assesses NASA’s SLS, Orion and GSDO programs

These three programs will cost $21 billion combined. Of the three, only the Ground System Development and Ops program is worth the money. GSDO is upgrading the Kennedy Space Center to become a commercial spaceport.

The GAO representative went on to say that NASA has not made official plans for all three programs, following their scheduled second test flights.

‘There are no official missions set beyond the second test flight for all three systems. NASA has a goal of going to Mars in its strategic plan, but no missions or roadmaps have been set,’ she explained

Nothing says “boondoggle” more than two multi-billion dollar programs with no defined mission.
