Re: Two words - Black Knight

So you're suggesting using a rocket with four successful launches and no development for the past half century that our own government cancelled because they were too fucking stupid to see the offer of cheap US launches for what it was?

36 United Kingdom Independent Positioning (UKIP) satellites at $60M a pop on a falcon 9 comes out to £1.5Bn before you do any development work, using a tried and tested launcher or build any satellites. This is all money that we wouldn't have needed to spend if we hadn't voted to leave.
