I for one hope that they do go this route since it will utilise the enormous base of practical lessons already learned with STS components, keep the factories and most jobs intact and would require little extra infrastructure to that which is already in place.

Additionally, though, I think a Delta Heavy (or Atlas ) should also be made man-rated if on a slower timescale .
