Comment An $80m model... (Score 3, Informative) 259

This was no balsa wood, cardboard tube rocket with the little plastic guy w/parachute in the nose cone.

This test alone cost $7m. They presumably need to build another $80m model to proceed with the other tests, which are probably not penny candy either.

Besides, the video of it crashing is spectacular. That alone makes it newsworthy.
