The truth is in there
But if they took it open source, people would start asking why there is a flying saucer simulation module. And with budget cuts, NASA only has one guy in a black suit to take care of that sort of stuff.

Of course old Blighty has a proud space history...
And no, no one has ever answered the question: How are we going to reuse it?
But to be fair, the rocket was designed and built by ATK. NASA only paid to put two experiments on it. Of course, are not ATK the same people who make the polaris and other solid rocket nuke missles???!! Hmmm......
"Gas ships can't have catapult launch - lacking the necessary steam - so our carriers won't be able to launch regular carrier planes. "
I seem to recall that the US did not have any problem with catapults on the old diesel powered carriers: USS Kittyhawk for example. So why not with the gas turbine ships?
