NASA Reveals a Moon Plan That Relies on the SLS Rocket

NASA has selected 11 companies to conduct studies and produce prototypes of human landers for its Artemis lunar exploration program. This effort will help put American astronauts — the first woman and next man — on the Moon’s south pole by 2024 and establish sustainable missions by 2028.

NASA has asked for an extra $1.6 billion in funding for 2020 to support the moon by 2024 program.

NASA has shown a plan for 37 launches of private and NASA rockets, robotic and human landers and starting a moon base long-duration crew stays in 2028.

15 Years, $30 Billion and No Good Test of a Big Rocket Based on Shuttle Technology:
The plan still relies on the Space Launch System (SLS). SLS has not flown its first test flight. There was a test flight in the Constellation program which was before SLS. The Constellation test was terrible.

Space Launch System (SLS) spent about $17 billion from 2011 to 2019. It will spend another $4 billion from 2020 to 2021. There is about $2.3 billion per year being spent on SLS. From 2005 to 2010, there was about $11.9 billion spent on the Constellation program. This was paid to mainly the same companies working on Space Launch System. The whole thinking was let make a big rocket out of Space Shuttle Technology.
