The Space Launch System, or SLS, is a Shuttle-Derived heavy launch vehicle being designed by NASA, following the cancellation of the Constellation Program, to replace the Space Shuttle. The NASA Authorization Act of 2010 envisions the transformation of the Ares I and Ares V vehicle designs into a single launch vehicle usable for both crew and cargo. It is to be upgraded over time with more powerful versions. On September 14, 2011, NASA announced that it had selected the design of the new Space Launch System. NASA declared that it would take the agency’s astronauts farther into space than ever before and provide the cornerstone for future human space exploration efforts by the U.S. That caused very mixed reactions. Some say that SLS is the only viable option to maintain America’s leadership in human space flight. Yet others maintain that it will never stay within its budget or schedule, and in the end will be cancelled.  Which in its turn could be detrimental to any new innovative programs attempting to lower costs by using commercial firms to fly astronauts into space.
