Description
 
The Space Launch System (SLS) program is the Nat. Aeronautics and Space Admin.s (NASA's) first exploration-class heavy lift launch vehicle in over 40 years. Predecessor programs, such as Constellation, were canceled due to acquisition problems and funding shortfalls. NASA estimates that it could spend almost $12 billion developing the first of three SLS vehicle variants and associated ground systems through initial launch in late 2017 and potentially billions more to develop increasingly capable vehicles. Ensuring that this program is affordable and sustainable for the long term is a key goal of the 2013 Nat. Space Transportation Policy. This report examines (1) the SLS program's progress toward and risks for its first test flight in 2017; and (2) the extent to which the SLS program has plans in place to achieve its long-term goals and promote affordability. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
