    Space X's Falcon Heavy

    Did anyone read this article about Space X's new "Falcon Heavy" rocket?

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110406/ap_on_sc/us_sci_space_x_rocket

    "Space X's new rocket called Falcon Heavy is big enough to send cargo or even people out of Earth's orbit to the moon...The Falcon Heavy could put 117,000 pounds into the same orbit as the International Space Station."

    "Musk said Falcon Heavy will be far cheaper than government or private rockets. Launches are about $100 million each. He said the Air Force pays two older more established aerospace firms about $435 million for each of its launches..."

    Which companies is Musk talking about?

    What an incredible private rocket. What does it mean for ORB investors?
