    I've just watched a program about NASA and their ORION crew wehicle as they call it. Funny though, I've always thought that when they're gonna replace their space shuttles, it would be with something similar but more advanced. Kinda disappointing....:lol: What's your view on the subject fellas??

    You're right, it is disappointing. For several years we've seen proposed replacements that looked like direct descendants of the space shuttle. This looks like a big step backwards.

    Its all about economics.

    If its cheaper not to use reusable componants, so be it.
