Capitalism, Soviet Style

Who says the old Soviets don't know how to make a buck?

Now that Obama has effectively ended the US capability of putting a man in space, NASA will have to buy rides for its astronauts on Soviet spacetrucks. Currently, they charge the US 23.6 million per person to put them in orbit, for a ride to the International Space Station.

NASA just signed a contract for the carriage of 6 astronauts to the space station in 2013 and 2014. The price ... 55.8 million apiece.

Hell ... Obama is even giving bailouts to the Soviet Space Agency.
