Now that we know the results of the latest spaceX launch (ka-boom), who (directly, and economically) pays for that rocket?
NASA and spaceX have a contract for a fixed number of launches, does it include any stipulations regarding failure? (Aka, did NASA pay for the rocket that exploded, or does spaceX owe them another one?)
Rockets are expensive. Are they commonly insured? (Aka: is it some random insurance company that is paying for this, or does this come directly out of NASA/spaceX pocket?)
