I believe that's true . They did not say a thing about how NASA is going to use the same ALU on their space ships that the U.S. Armed Forces are going to use . That will be the next announcement , I happen to see it on the Discovery Channel 2 weeks ago ! It' will save many many pounds off their crafts . Just a few pounds cost them BOCO energy !!!
Don't know, but the WSJ had a story on Sunday about a large aluminum producer (not AA) in Ohio, I believe, that was given a break on their electric bill by the PUC in order to save that company which had announced it would otherwise have to close and lay off its 850 workers. Not directly related to AA but the gloomy disclosure about aluminum prices could have had an impact.
