"NASA's X-57 Maxwell all-electric aircraft project, designed as a test platform for electric propulsion technologies, will wrap up operations by September 2023. Despite no maiden flight due to technical challenges, the project made significant contributions in areas such as battery technology and motor control design. The findings will be documented and shared with the industry, aiding the U.S.'s goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions from aviation by 2050."

So they are saying "Mission Accomplished" but the thing literally never got off the ground.
