NASA is still having trouble managing the development of its next big rocket, the Space Launch System, a new audit has found. The report is the latest in a string of damning reports from NASA's inspector general, which has been warning about scheduling and budget problems with the rocket for years.
The Space Launch System, or SLS, is the epicenter of NASA's Artemis program, the agency's plan to return humans to the Moon by 2024 and put the first woman on the lunar surface.
Once complete, the SLS is set to be the most powerful rocket in the world, capable of lofting more than 200,000 pounds of material into low Earth orbit.
