NASA Contract Could Jumpstart Rocket Start Up: "Eager to find new ways to ferry cargo to and from the international space station, NASA plans to pay a U.S. company $227.4 million for the demonstration of a reusable rocket that has been in development since the satellite boom of the 1990s." Wow, this in combo with the X-Prize could really jump start the development of a private industry launch capability, which we desperately need to lower the cost of sending things (and humans) into space.
