SLS completes CDR

NASA’s Space Launch System is a ‘GO’. The last time a new NASA launch system passed CDR was 1970, so this really is a BIG DEAL. Passing CDR means that the SLS can go into production, and the next major milestone for it will be launch itself, which will definitely be a BIG DEAL.

SLS’ EM-1 is still targeted for 2018.

Congrats to NASA and it’s SLS contractors: Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Aerojet Rockedyne, and Orbital ATK.
