For Sale, Cheap

United Space Alliance is making what even it considers a long-shot bid to take the Space Shuttle program private. Why go to all the trouble of developing a new manned space capability when you can use what the taxpayers paid for already? I bet the SpaceX people are... unhappy... about the idea.

From everything I've heard about the Space Shuttle, it was incredibly costly to use and maintain, so I'm not sure any private company could actually profitize any program around it.
