Pleased for SpaceX but gutted for SNC, politics was never my strong suit and perhaps I should start learning. :(

"...pretend to be Americans..."

WTF? Blathering patriotism instead of what everyone came to hear, and the reasons why. Someone pull this guy off-stage.

Where is that 'dislike' button? If that's not an award-and-a-half then I don't know what...
I second that.  I'm really not a fan of that split...

Maybe it is $1.2 Billion to Boeing for mission readiness payments (to deliver nothing), plus $3 B to Boeing to get the job done and $2.6 B to SpaceX.
On the ground floor of the National Space Foundation... Colonize Mars!

I think it's safe to say he's got it already.

At least Boeing will be able to afford the bonuses for their roaming hoards of lobbyists that worked their magic over the last few weeks.

I feel like resigning today. Money buys you money.

Each provider will make one crewed flight to ISS.

Excellent! Taking both systems to a flight ready state will ensure that at least one will be successful.


$4.2B at 6 flights of 4 is $175M per seat
$2.6B at 6 flights of 4 is $108M per seat

Where do people get the 6 flight from? And if so only one of them will be crewed.

calling "Spanky" precious cargo may be a stretch :)
