"We're working on that next generation rocket right now with our NASA customers called 'Space Launch System,'" Muilenburg said. "This is a rocket that's about 36 stories tall, we're in the final assembly right now, down near New Orleans. And we're going to take a first test flight in 2019 and we're going to do a slingshot mission around the moon."
Space Launch System is getting about $4 billion per year from NASA. They have gotten $20 billion from NASA for this and $10 billion for the prior Constellation program. They have not launched anything despite getting about $30 billion and having had over ten years.
