Re: Russian/Georgia conflict affect ISS operations?

Too bad the X-38 CRV was killed in '02. It could have been operational by now and launched by an ELV would have eliminated U.S. dependence on the Soyuz and the Shuttle for a ride to the ISS.

It'd be nice if the funding could be found to finish it before 2010. Fat chance though. Aside from the big dollars needed to restart the program, it'd be a competitor for Orion and that spacecraft's advocates would have the knives out quickly.
