   D.A.D. is spot on. Whether it is an orbiting BMD fleet or space tourists,  NASDAQ or NASA, all depends on reducing launch costs by orders of magnitude. With each order of magnitude you lower cost-to-orbit, there is exponential growth in MPS, space tourism & solar system exploration.

    How many of us will live to see the replacement for the 3 space shuttles?
