    Oh good. He’ll make sure no launches will have aborts in the future. /s

    I hope he follows the America first theme and tells NASA to use a Ares 1-A(new model, my name) to launch Cygnus to ISS. If NASA can quickly by a Atlas, they could buy 2 segments(1.5 m.thrust and a regular Castor 30XL.).With SLS delay O-ATK should be able to work it into their schedule. If Russia is found to have broken into Democratic Party HQ. and released the e-mails Russian engines might be banned. An all American rocket announced on the 4th of July. Yea! Ukraine is making rockets for Sea Launch, so they can continue with out Antares.
