PlanetSpace appeal denied

Robert Block of the Orlando Sentinel's The Write Stuff notes that the U.S. Government Accounting Office (GAO) has quietly denied an appeal by PlanetSpace, Inc. of awards made last December by NASA of twenty ATV ISS resupply missions last December made to SpaceX and Orbital Sciences Corporation.

Background HERE.

"PlanetSpace filed an official protest to the General Accountability Office in January after NASA awarded SpaceX and Orbital the contract to resupply the international Space Station during the transition between the retirement of the space shuttle and when the Constellation program becomes operational after 2015."
