Fantastic. Thanks alot, really. It puts into one page the essential
information I was seeking for the part of the mission for an
alternative way to pay Orbital to finish Dawn. It's a long shot in any
case; nonNASA space agencies are the first choice by the project
managers because that is the approach that they know best (guessing
that this idea is a crazy idea to them too), but I presented an
alternative approach about private funding to finish Dawn, if their
first choice fails.

The number of wealthy-people/genuine-space-geeks listed on that web
page investing in space was astounding to me! Put a smile on my face!
