VAB, Kennedy Space Center - In recent news, we got to know that the ICPS stage was stacked on the main rocket but recent news reveals that it was stacked without an engine!

"The engineers handling the rocket that day were all amateurs and thought that the engine was already in the LVSA stage. When they found it wasn't there they assumed it was not needed", said Silliw Divad in a statement about the situation.

"I follow Mlon Eusk and I thought that the best part is no part, so I didn't give a thought about the engine", said an anonymous worker who was at the VAB overseeing the stacking.

Whatever happens, the program is at least delayed by another 5 years but that is the best case scenario.
