Ok, do you have any sort of numbers, rough estimates, an article written on a blog somewhere, or anything that shows this is true in a quantifiable way? The requirements being that the private company must be able to launch a vehicle to go orbital with the same level of safety as the space shuttle. This company must include the costs associated with:

1) Building the crew vehicle
2) Building the rocket/airplane/hot air balloon/slingshot that gets the crew vehicle up to orbit
3) Building or leasing the infrastructure required to process and launch the vehicle
4) Ground and Mission operations
5) Telemetry and tracking
6) Vehicle recovery

EOE Concerns w/ Electronic-only Job Application? 402

from the paper-applications-should-still-be-an-option dept.
Khyber asks: "Jobs seem to be increasingly harder to find in the real world today, and even harder to obtain due to the increased proliferation of on-line-only or electronic-only job applications. I know this firsthand - as today I attempted to apply for a job at Kroger's, only to discover that I had to fill out one of these electronic applications in their 'Career Opportunities Kiosk.' The machine miserably failed to get past the second page of the multi-paged the application. I've asked the manager if there was a paper application to fill out (why do I need to know how to use a computer to stock shelves?) and he has told me that I -must- fill out the application on their broken and defunct Dell Genesis Terminal. Are there legal concerns that I should be looking at, here?"
