Who are the guys with a "USA" logo on their jump-suits that I've seen on the NASA Select channel on my cable system?
"Those Guys" work for United Space Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin and Rockwell International who teamed together to win the contract to support the Space Shuttle program. Boeing became involved when it bought Rockwell's aerospace business. NASA really does very little at The Cape, but instead it hires Contractors to do most of the work. Bidding on government contracts is what fuels the economy, and competition among contractors is what (supposedly) lowers the cost. Thanx for asking, Chris.
