NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) heavy-lift rocket may lift off on its maiden mission with astronauts on board, NASA’s acting administrator Robert Lightfoot said on Wednesday (Feb. 15). In an email to the agency’s employees, Lightfoot wrote that he has asked for a study to be initiated to “assess the feasibility of adding a crew to Exploration Mission-1,” which had been slated for launch in late 2018. Lightfoot acknowledged the challenges of flying astronauts “would require a different launch date.”
