U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, questioned NASA about the delays in the Space Launch System due to problems with new welding techniques to build the SLS.
“America’s ability to send astronauts beyond low Earth orbit hinges on completion of the Space Launch System (SLS), a portion of which is being developed at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center,” Brooks said. “In this morning’s House Science, Space, and Technology Space Subcommittee hearing, I questioned Mr. William Gerstenmaier, NASA’s Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Directorate, on developing processes and procedures to avoid delays to the SLS program and areas of concern in the upcoming test of SLS’s core stage element.”
