This IS Trump's Space Force.

I lolled at SLS being "100% over budget".

How is this even possible seeing how this launcher thingy is supposed to be based on "trusted & true" technologies?

Did someone menace the Boeing project manager to compress his Gantt chart while demanding that various bells & whistles be added here & there?

"Second, we found flaws in NASA’s evaluation of Boeing’s performance, resulting in NASA inflating

the contractor’s scores and leading to overly generous award fees. Specifically, in the six evaluation periods since 2012 in which NASA provided ratings, Agency officials deemed Boeing’s performance “excellent” in three and “very good” in three other periods, resulting in payment of $323 million or 90

percent of the available award and incentive fees."

Oh. This sounds like something political.
