It's called a "Launch Window" for a reason.

But note they still have till Aug 15th to get everything sorted. NASA and ULA could still make it happen. Telatively tight. Not impossible.

Aug 15th is also when SX would have to send something to Mars. They are unlikely to make it happen.

But 2022 should be a different story.
