the agency needs to evolve and embrace the options outside the gate instead of the not invented here mentality dictating in house for everything
If the Trump-Pence team pushes it, Falcon Heavy rockets could have more than 100 launches through 2024. The New Glenn, which will lift almost as much as the Falcon Heavy and will be rated to carry humans from Day One, could add another 20 flights between 2020 and 2024.

Together, these approximately 120 heavy commercial flights would lift as much payload as 60 of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) flights. However, there will be at most four SLS flights by end of 2024, according to current plans. Each reusable commercial flight will also cost less than $100 million, while SLS flights will cost $700 million to $1 billion per launch.
Even 4 SLS by 2024 is probably overly optimistic

The Danakil Depression (aka “The cruelest place on earth”) sits deep in the northern deserts of Ethiopia, and averages the hottest place on the planet. Venturing here is extremely difficult and quite dangerous, requiring multiple 4WDs (in case one fails) and a convoy of armed Militia for protection. Those who brave the harsh conditions are rewarded with a landscape that looks more like Mars, than Earth…
