SLS 2021

Looks like the second quarter of 2021 for the first flight of the Space Launch System, just under two years from now. Plenty of time for NASA to rationalize their Human Space Flight program by abandoning LEO and redirecting that over 4 billion a year into expanding SLS launch cadence. In my view the critical pieces of hardware needed to create a cislunar infrastructure are going to be first 6 to 8 SLS launches a year, then a Lander that can shuttle water up to wet workshops, and of course a double-hull 50 foot diameter upper stage “Fat Workshop.”
