Lockheed Martin Solution For NASA's Commercial Resupply Services Designed For Reliable Space Cargo Delivery, Lockheed Martin

"The Lockheed Martin CRS-2 solution brings many affordability benefits with it. Not only does it employ a reusable spacecraft and create the option to host commercial payloads, it's also designed to support future exploration missions in deep space."

Keith's note: This certainly has to factor into Lockheed Martin's thoughts about whether they want to try and sell their interest in ULA.
