Ordered mine from Newark!  
Have no idea:

1) More than $25 billion was spent on the Apollo program (20+ launches/tests flights/actual moon landings) , which would be considered more than $100 billion in today's currency. Most of this sum went toward designing and building the spacecraft, rockets and systems needed to land men on the moon and return them home safely. And we did it in 9 years...
2) The "new" Orion program won't be operational until 2020 and the first 2 flights are estimated to cost $19-22 billion.  This is 16 years after the project was announced.

I would think that it shouldn't take that long and cost that much to do something we've already done.

Silly me for thinking that.

The Montgomery County parents say they saw it as a moment of independence for their kids, ages 10 and 6, but that authorities viewed it much differently.
