its like both sides are flip sides of each other
just hope SLS can stick their ISS automation???
Just FYI, SLS didn't stick anything, the Orion capsule mock-up for the abort test was launched on a Peacekeeper ICBM booster.
The Orion capsule has also been in development way longer than either SpaceX's Dragon 2 or Boeings Starliner, its a capsule with entirely different goals and not a competitor to the Dragon 2 nor the Starliner.
And the actual SLS hardware isn't even close to ready for launch testing yet.

Hurr hurr, there wasn't even a spy satellite on board this time, there wouldn't even be room for a "hidden secret payload" if that's what you think, spy satellites are massive and require almost the entire fairing to themselves.
What was launched was a massive amount of scientific satellites ranging from interesting to extremely important.
