Lots on COTS

SLP congratulates SpaceX and Rocketplane Kistler on winning $485 million under NASA's innovative Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program to develop transport for carrying cargo and crew to and from the International Space Station.

I am semi- on vacation but I'm sure everyone's been following the COTS news, including via HobbySpace where Clark covered NASA's Friday
press conference, and pulled together COTS news and reactions here, here and here.

And yes, as NASA specified again on Friday, companies that did not win a phase 1 award -- including SpaceDev, Spacehab, t/Space, Andrews Space and others -- may still bid on phase 2 pay-as-you-go contracts, around 2010.

So who's betting against Mike Griffin's half billion dollar COTS bet? Not me ;).

Hitch your commercial space wagon to a star.
