Griffin: It’s very Apollo-like. Think of it as Apollo on steroids. It’s 50% bigger than Apollo.

Cost: Much, much bigger than I thought. Griffin’s in Q&A session now. First question, the most obvious one: how much is this gonna cost: $104 billion dollars for the first moon mission with people, spread out of 13 years. Yow.

NASA admin Griffin just presneted new spaceship plans. It’s essentially Apollo, NASA’s original moonship. But this one can fly four people to the moon instead of two. It will land on land, not water. But otherwise looks the same: capsule plus service module, even given the same name: Command and Service module.
