We'll see what happens tomorrow.


NASA moon rocket on track for launch despite lightning hits
Officials said Sunday that neither the rocket nor capsule suffered any damage during Saturday’s thunderstorm; ground equipment also was unaffected.

FINALLY…

Then Gateway, the lunar base and then off to Mars.

This will be the furthest a human passenger capable craft has ever been from our planet.

Actually lots of radical stuff nearly as impressive as the Apollo program.

They had multiple problems. Fuel leak, valve issue and communications error. It’s ok Boeing is in charge. A few more billion and they may get it. You may or may not know Canada is helping fund this thing. I’m not impressed nor should you
They made sure the manikins onboard were vaccinated??? :)

WTF?

They build SLS using spare 40 year old Shuttle hardware and surprise, same hydrogen fuel leak that scrubbed many Shuttle launch attempts! Go figure. Ten years in development and $23 billion should be modern designs.

Why should you not be impressed with the most complicated rocket ever made that will eventually get you to mars???
