The report also reveals NASA and Boeing were forced to change the way the rocket's liquid oxygen tanks are welded together, causing more delays.A Government Accountability Office report says the Space Launch System is quickly running out of schedule margin to meet its November 2018 launch date.NASA announces Orion has passed KDP-C, which locks in a baseline crewed flight test date of no later than April 2023—a potential slip of two years from previous estimates.Perhaps this timeline will help elaborate on my frustration: THEN 1962 - (Feb) John Glenn, 1st American in space, part of Project Mercury ...
