WASHINGTON — Top officials at NASA and in Congress have reached an accord on how the agency should proceed in developing “space taxis” to service the International Space Station.http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/new...ace-taxis.htmlU.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, the Virginia Republican who heads the House appropriation subcommittee with NASA oversight, said today that the program would fully fund two companies — and could partially fund a third.
That’s down from as many as four companies, according to Wolf.
Let's see. We have: SpaceX (Dragon), Boeing (CST-100), Orbital (Cygnus), Blue Origin (New Shepard?) and Sierra Nevada Corporation (Dreamchaser).
Now, two of these are going to be funded "fully" and one is going to be funded "partially" -- whatever that means.
So the big question is: who gets killed, who starves, and who lives?
