“We’re looking to optimize it, make it as short as possible,” he said.
Our launch readiness date is still 2020, and we’re doing everything within our power to make sure that we support that.”Singer didn’t identify the specific issues with EM-1 that prompted the reassessment, but NASA officials have previously said that the core stage of the SLS, along with the European-built service module for the Orion spacecraft that SLS will launch, were the items on the critical path for the mission.Singer, a veteran engineer and manager who became director of NASA Marshall in September 2018, acknowledged issues in the development of SLS in general, whose first launch has slipped from 2017 to at least 2020 over the course of its development. A first launch of the SLS before the end of 2020 is still doable, provided the core stage is completed by the end of 2019 and the green run test wrapped up in under six months. Best case launch date for a fully assembled and tested SLS is December 2019.
WASHINGTON — NASA believes it is still possible to perform the first launch of the Space Launch System before the end of 2020 even if the agency decides to retain some version of a key static-fire test of the rocket’s core stage.Speaking at a May 28 meeting of the NASA Advisory Council’s human exploration and operations committee, Bill Hill, deputy associate administrator for exploration systems development, said that the agency has yet to decide whether to perform what’s known as the “green run,” where the core stage and its four RS-25 engines are fired for eight minutes on a test stand at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.“We provided the agency with a recommendation. “We’re working that to see if we can recover some of that.” WASHINGTON — The director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center said March 5 that the agency is “reassessing” the 2020 launch date for the first flight of its Space Launch System, suggesting that the mission may face further delays.During a question-and-answer session at a Space Transportation Association luncheon here, Jody Singer said the launch readiness date for Exploration Mission (EM) 1 is still in 2020, but did not give a more precise estimate of the date even as NASA reviews possible changes to it.“We do know that we are reassessing those dates to see if that date will work, based on making sure we have the vehicle ready, and ready to go fly safely,” she said.
“The SLS vehicle is almost complete. “We are working hard to build SLS and, yes, we’re overcoming challenges,” she said.Other elements of the SLS are largely complete, she said, including its two five-segment solid rocket boosters, upper stage and adapters. As of July 2020, it is expected to launch in November 2020. All eyes are on south Mississippi with this month’s delivery and installation of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket’s first core stage to Stennis Space Center for a milestone Green Run test series prior to its Artemis I flight.

Artemis 1 is a planned uncrewed test flight for NASA's Artemis program that is the first integrated flight of the agency's Orion MPCV and Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket. “We are assessing that date. NASA has assigned Bill Wrobel, the former director of NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, to be the “point person” for planning for the green run.Those changes include adding an additional shift of workers.
