    You work for Elon Musk or something? He seems to share you opinion :

    "The results are pretty crazy," Musk said in the 2012 interview. "One of our competitors, Orbital Sciences, has a contract to resupply the International Space Station, and their rocket honestly sounds like the punch line to a joke. It uses Russian rocket engines that were made in the '60s. I don’t mean their design is from the '60s -- I mean they start with engines that were literally made in the '60s and, like, packed away in Siberia somewhere."

    I wish. It's an opinion a lot of people have. Eventually Orbital will run out of supply and will actually have to start producing their own rockets. If they haven't been pummeled out of the market by then. They are a legacy contractor chosen because they've always been chosen.

    Orbital has some problems with its VA based rocket folks working on this one.

    The Phoenix based ones working on Minotaur are doing fine. Problem with this is, 40+ year old Soviet engines.
    Engine was refurbished, basically new.

    You see the thing here? The thing you just noticed and pointed out? This is a wonderful concept that I want you to hold on to. Keep an eye out for this in the future. It happens constantly, and once you start to notice it, you realize that it's everywhere. Good for you, jmotivator, you've joined the ranks of posters whose eyes are open to this ridiculous type of posting.

    Now, here's what I want you to do with this new found skill:

    Apply this to "race card" posts.

    I will be sure to call on anyone who tries to derail a debate by using the race card.
