This is a normal post P.S. SLS is the ridiculous waste of money,
...and needs to be cancelled immediately.

The Space Launch System is NASA's replacement for the Space Shuttle, but it's already been superseded by the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, before it's even built. Each Launch of SLS will likely cost $1b; Falcon Heavy launch cost is about $90m and falling. (There has only been the one FH launch so far; there's likely to be 1 or 2 more this year; but already, the upgrade replacement "Big Fucking Rocket" is under construction.)

If SLS is ever launched, it'll be a ridiculously expensive alternative to just using SpaceX's Falcon Heavy/BFR. It's already cost around $20 billion, and each day it continues, it wastes more millions.
