    So essentially, the best they could come up with was something bigger, but that still only barely measures up (in payload) to what we could do 40 years ago? That’s sad…and we’re stuck with it for 15-20 years. What a horrible step backwards we have taken.

    All in all its good news, as Ares was supposed to be the go-between to SLS i.e. waste. Five SSME’s are good, reliable engines. I wonder what the J-2X burns like — wish my daddy still worked at Stennis so I could see a test! 😉
