Economic expansion and liberty, by Mars Maniac in Chief Ken MMinC., and occasional brilliance and humor by CJ.
Great points.... But, CST-100 has been dropped? Actually, we can't even say that; what was dropped was a structural analog, a rough mockup, not even a structural test article. It only mimicked the approximate weight and shape of the CST-100 to test the airbags and parachutes. The long and the short of it is, Boeing, while getting more of the CcCap money, did far less with it than SNC or SpaceX. The "Milestones" they fulfilled were quite different from those of SNC and SpaceX... almost all of them were paperwork.
I wasn't paying much attention to the Boeing drop test. Good to know. Thanks CJ.
