NASA has, perhaps rightly so, cautious about utilizing private space transport contractors. You know, all that need to see reliability. While the Russians (essentially a private contractor at this point) have a good record overall, I'd like to see a comparison over the last 5 years. What is the success to failure rate for Roscosmos, SpaceX, Nasa (ULA), etc...?
So, basically, NASA just found their Sugar Daddy...
In general, there is no sole arbiter of what words, grammar or syntax is English. English is largely defined by common usage.
The Oxford English Dictionary, and other popular dictionaries or encyclopedia may well be used as supporting evidence for how we use English, but I certainly don't look to the Associated Press, as reported by ABC News, as a strong basis for what I should be doing with my speech and writing.

I called their support line. They didn't offer much in the way of help, but did say that the email address had been changed on my card and that it was indeed removed. They reset my password and are sending me a new Gold Card.
This is an admirable step, but there's a much better way to deal with the student debt issue, IMO. Deal with the existing debt and this will inject significantly more money into the economy.

I thought that in old CPUs, like 6502 the processor would not listen to interupts anymore.
The original 6502 certainly had no HALT instruction (or similar variant). I don't believe there's any way to stop it listening for an NMI (Non-Maskable Interrupt), although obviously a "normal" maskable interrupt is trivially blocked by setting the IRQ disable bit in the status register.
"now"...But I'm NOW pretty sure that the Googleplex is now self-aware and is trying to make itself self-mobile.
It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
