NASA quietly pushes back its SLS launch estimates to 2021.
NASA really, really wants to send astronauts to the Moon and eventually other planets, but it currently doesn’t have a rocket capable of such feats. The Space Launch System (SLS) is NASA’s solution, but the development of the rocket has taken far longer — and cost far more — than the agency ever planned.
