For everyone about to declare that NASA needs to hand space launches over to private industry like Space X because of the Antares rocket explosion, please make yourself aware that the Antares rocket was built by a private corporation and the launch was staffed by that same private corporation.
“NASA didn’t build it, or launch it. The entire thing was handled by the commercial company Orbital Sciences Corporation.”
