I’m sure they will but I still think NASA made a mistake scrapping the Saturn series.
I blame the politicians like Fritz Mondale..
I wish SpaceX the best but flooding the commercial sector with our vast accumulation of space exploration knowledge is tantamount to declassifying everything.. Just a big government giveaway or space 'redistribution of knowledge' program. Bye bye American exceptionalism.
If there's ONE thing our government SHOULD control it's space exploration programs, not health care, soda sales in schools, Wall Street or student and home loans. If it's bassackwards, it's 'bama!
Well, the Lords of Budgets deemed that the end of Apollo automatically meant an end to the Saturn series (including the Saturn 1B). In the minds of many, those launchers were seen as program-specific, so the end of the program meant the end of the launchers. Hell, it is still a shame that Skylab wasn’t boosted into a higher orbit or that the second launch article was never launched.
