    I appreciate that Rep. Walker seems totally open about space transportation. It could be SLS, commercial launchers, LEO assembly, and/or nuclear rockets — whatever works out best. Given that, Falcon Heavy’s November launch could be significant because it would be nearly as capable as the SLS Block 1 at a fraction of the cost.

    Does any of the TMRO crew plan on heading down to South America in 2019 for the total solar eclipse? I’ll be heading to Chile to catch it!
