To think I was once amazed that the DC-X flew for the bargain cost of a mere $60 million.

hmmm if they really can make a suborbital craft that can be made for 100,000 (exluding the prototype) I wonder if they can make an orbital craft that can be turned out for 10,000,000 or less? (after the first one is made and tested)

I mean if they can do that all I have to do is convince a few minor millionares to part with their money and I have a space company...

If they can be around the same price as Airliners, thats good enough.

Airliners go for $300,000,000.

The DH-1 is $250mil. I think... fuzzy...

Airliner contracts can be worth Billions of dollars for delivery of say ten aircraft.

Yeah what i mean is, if they can cost as little as ( or less than) an airliner to produce, then there is obviously a future for them.
