    SpaceX Wins $440 million Contract to Develop Successor to the Space Shuttle.

    Spaceflight Now - SpaceX statement

    This will be a workhorse space capsule similar to Soyuz but a lot cheaper. The first manned flight is expected to take place in 2015.

    Modest gain but an improvement over the shuttle program.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
