Well I guess it is time to rename SSM2010 project to Space Shuttle: The Legacy
I wish good luck to multinational corporations.
However, to cool the hype. VentureStar was supposed to be huge commercial success. It brought new initiatives and was very innovative. We all know what happened to it!
It is like new US administration officially denied what they did before - rejected support for innovative commercial system.
I suppose NASA will be US based space administration like FAA is currently for aviation (where the last already proposed guidelines for commercial human space flight).
