Per-launch costs can be measured by dividing the total cost over the life of the program (including buildings, facilities, training, salaries, etc.) by the number of launches. With 134 missions, and the total cost of US$192 billion (in 2010 dollars), this gives approximately $1.5 billion per launch over the life of the program

He never changed his stripes, he just looked at the demographics of his state. Anyone look in his closet? I'll bet his sheets are cleaned, pressed and starched in the collar.

Defict spending abounds, and the neocons still think we can spend like it's 1999!

Too funny.

"We cannot find any justification to continue the deficit funding of a program that has no application other that proving that with enough money America can do anything," said Bush.

"The whole world knows that already, so why keep spending money on it," he added.
Even GWB had his moments of clarity.
