So Marcelo, this should give SpaceX some added boost.

Sounds like a lot of posturing, what Russia doesn't want another billion American dollars ?

Plus ULA already stated they have a two year stockpile of RD180s.

Orbital Sciences uses NK33 for the Antares rocket, seems to have over 20 in stockpile.

The key fact was the injunction was dropped. I'm sure when the time comes the Ruskies will want the money.

The Russian economy is extremely weak, if Europe stops buying their gas, they will be in serious trouble.

Oh the curse of having lots of oil and gas, the economy molds around money from from that resource, cleptocracy sets in, and when the money stops flowing, all hell breaks loose.

You seem to have this blind spot where space launch planning is
concerned. Each launch is planned years in advance and is a project in
itself. It's not oil at the refinery tank farm.

Don't top post.
