Space Shuttle Replacement?

Well, *most* of it worked as a test - looks like a bad data link and some setup information that was slightly incorrect, leading to the capsule attempting to correct a positional error that could have been corrected if it'd been crewed. It went up, nearly made RV, and got back down again very accurately (on a runway threshold in fact!)

If it'd not been for recent reversals for Boeing, they'd have skated with that one quite nicely I think.

Agreed, but the reversals just seem to keep on coming so even minor screw-ups by Boeing will now be magnified by the media and public. They kind of deserve it IMHO.

Found this Video of Chrysler Space Shuttle concept. It's like Flying mushroom or Flying Piramide..depend on how you look it.

Interesting concept.
