US Budget savings and cuts.
Shuttle retired? Thats a the average cost to launch a Space Shuttle about $450 million per mission (per NASA reported cost to launch) saved.


So the shuttle is done. Now think about it. Would they retire the program unless they had another system in place? I don't think so. So what has our tax dollars been building?

These guys actually fly out of an airport less than 5 miles from my house:

Armadillo Aerospace - Home

They were founded by John Carmack, aka the former head honcho of Id software (Quake, Doom, etc).
