Re: Envisioning the world of 2100

They might find that easier to do now. Kay Bailey Hutchinson is looking at retirement and Ben Nelson has won reelection and is basically safe for another six years. So that's the political sidelining of the SLS' de facto designers; at the same time, the House was always somewhat leery on the SLS and Senate approval fell on almost purely partisan lines, so the chance of Congress either scaling down the requirement or opening up some flexibility (e.g. allowing NASA to study the possibility of commissioning a version of the Falcon Heavy for that system) is a little bit higher.
