Despite delays, the 242-pound (110-kilogram) orbiter is under construction, the launch vehicle is in place at a Russian facility, and it looks like liftoff will occur "in October or November of this year," Laurie said. He added that he's 80 to 90 percent confident in that forecast.


Wow, that's not too far ahead. Perhaps it'll be successful. I'm not sure about crashing it into the moon. Hopefully it won't be too much trash. Yes, I'm one of those 'don't mess this globe up too' kind of people.
Nice find, Kriskaos. Thanks for posting the link.

Privite enterprise is the only way any of us will have a chance to get to space. Any thing the government is involved in will cost 10X as much and take 10X as long as it should. I there is money to be made though free enterprise will have motels on the moon in a few years. Never underestamate greed

I agree. that private companies is the way to go for funding but not the politics of space programs companies will want to monopolize space and the industry and that is not good for anyone. Like even in the movies and games the Company ( Alien) Tri-Optimum( SYSTEM SHOCK 2 ) everything goes to hell if they try to take over hhee but thats just the movies.
