Death of the Antares rocket

Amusing that after all the money invested in the Antares rocket, having it explode then redesigning it for another engine, it didn't have enough power so they ended up going back to the Atlas V. Atlas V allows 700 more lbs of payload to the space station, bringing it to 8157 lbs. The most the Falcon 9 moved to the space station was 6914 lbs, but it recovered its 1st stage. The Falcon 9 is gone until next year, which means all the money spent on the commercial cargo program led to just 1 new spaceship launching on the same old rocket.
