NASA accidentally drops crew vehicle, delays Artemis 15 more years

Langley Research Center, VA--NASA's crew vehicle was accidentally dropped on April 6 during a routine surround sound test.  Though much is unknown at this time, a NASA representative has confirmed the accident will delay Artemis by 15 years minimum.  Though the cause of the fall is still not confirmed, we can safely say this means SLS should be canceled.

Online spaceflight educator Term Derd had speculation on the cause of the fall, saying this:  

"My best guess is that Orion was just far too laden with taxpayer money.  Clearly the only option for NASA is to switch to Starship, which is far safer for crew, as we've seen by recent Boca Chica tests."

Despite the recent attempt to save SLS with the newly proposed "SLS Lite," it is clear that it should be canceled.  Photo source: NASA Langley
