Is this rocket going to live up to expectations?

After reading about Chinese spy working for Russia. I have concerns.
5. We’re Building This Rocket to Take Humans to the Moon and Beyond
The SLS rocket is a national asset for leading new missions to deep space. More than 1,000 large and small companies in 44 states are building the rocket that will take humans to the Moon. Work on SLS has an economic impact of $5.7 billion and generates 32,000 jobs. Small businesses across the U.S. supply 40 percent of the raw materials for the rocket. An investment in SLS is an investment in human spaceflight and in American industry and will lead to applications beyond NASA.

I think it will.
They've completed the brains (computers) and testing showed everything was functioning as designed.
That's a good start.
Regarding the spy, I really doubt that situation will affect this project.
In fact, it's likely we'll never notice the effects of the theft. (if anything actually made it out of the country)
The technology stolen will just be incorporated into China's space projects.

I don't think we have to worry a whole lot about conflicts on the Moon or Mars for quite awhile yet. The environments are so harsh it'll be all we, and they, can do just to survive the conditions.
Disrupting satellite communications and the like is certainly a possibility, though.

That is my concern. They will use it to interfere in our missions to the moon, Mars, satellite operations and anything they can.
They would like to get Mars and steal what we create there.
