US Space Shuttle and India's RLV ..
Criticising the Space Shuttle is punching America in the face - Forbes mag..
NASA spent $196 billion on their failed, unreliable and overspent Space Shuttle mission (flew a total of 135 missions through 5 shuttles), at a claimed cost of $450 million for each mission on an average (the actual cost was $1.3 billion per flight).
India's preliminary Reusable Launch Vehicle (unmanned and one fifth the original size) due for launch on 23 may, 9.30 am IST, has so far incurred a cost of INR 95 crores, which is app $15 million. (just 1.1% of US' app $1300 million per flight of the failed mission).
True, the failed space shuttle, deserves it's final resting place in the Smithsonian National air and Space muse um in Wash. DC.
