 Hey Space Placers!

NASA and Boeing conducted their Test Run of the SLS which I blogged on. However the test ran for only 67 seconds instead of the 8 minute plus scheduled run. The test shut down due to a hydraulic issue.

The Washington Post has a good article with more information. 

I personally think that another test run will need to be conducted that meets the 8+ minute mark AND achieves all of the test data objectives that engineers want.

NASA will be getting a new Administrator soon and that will help determine the future of SLS.

I am hoping there is no deviation from going to the Moon to STAY this time.

Only time will tell......
