Submission + - How Crony Capitalism is Undermining the Space Prog (weeklystandard.com)

geoffrobinson writes: An article in the conservative Weekly Standard raises concerns about the planned $18 billion Space Launch System (SLS). The program is being pushed by a bipartisan group of Senators. NASA claims it will only be used once or twice a year, so each launch will cost over a billion dollars.
