    I just read an article on the Russia and America tensions in space talking about Russia wanting to ban the US from the space station. The also may cut off supply of the RD-180s engine. The ULA is planning on developing a new engine to be ready by 2019 and whichever company gets the contracts will have billions of dollars of development work and revenue from the sell. In the article it mentions Orbital ATK and GY as the likely contenders but says GY is the front-runner. How do you think this will affect the company? What chances do you think we have on getting the contract with the new company?

    That can be true. The thing is that buring nat gas is way cleaner then coal but the methods for getting the natural gas such as fracking is where the methane and polution can come from. Fracking is the reason nat gas is so cheep now but it is also becoming pushed back by enviormental groups. I say the biggest thing holding back nat gas is the polution of fracking.

    I work for a company that engineers power plants and industrial plants. I can can tell you that our projects have changed to a large majority nat gas. We no longer build coal plants because right now nat gas is so cheep everyone wants to build nat gas plants. There is also a project in the works changing an old plant that use to recive nat gas from overseas to an export plant that sends gas over to other countries. That project has gotten some notice from the EPA but it worked past it. Overall Nat gas is way cleaner than coal and right now it is defently being used.
