If You Can Put a Man on the Moon . . .

Aaa_9 . . . settling a dispute over a government contract ought to be easy, right?  Maybe, maybe not.  The two contractors fighting over NASA's proposed Constellation moon-rocket project have apparently called a "weeklong truce" in their battle.  United Space Alliance, the biggest contractor at Kennedy Space Center, is suing Alliant Techsystems, claiming that Alliant had promised it a long-term subcontract to work on the Moon missile project.

You can already hear the jokes:  "The bad news is that NASA has had to scale back the project so that the Moon rocket will only travel one way.  The good news is that the lawyers will be flying the spacecraft."
