Saw it on the news this morning; Nasa spokesman said they could not do this without them (space-X and Boeing). I was thinking, well actually we did do this without them.
I watched it happen. But I guess he was referring to congress not making enough money available for NASA to do it. I guess this way there is some cost shifting to market capitalization and also blame shifting if anything goes Challenger wrong.
I'll be setting my clock early to watch this too. I hope that sound traveler
(indirect link) gets to film this launch.
