First Round of COTS Cuts: Down to 6

According to Michael Belfiore and his source at NASA, the first round of COTS cuts has been made by phone. At least five of them are reported to be:

Rocketplane Kistler
Andrews Space
Transformational Space Corporation (t/Space)
Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX)

To me this is the most exciting part of the VSE (at least in the near term). Stay tuned!

Update: Michael says SpaceDev is, in fact, the last finalist. Alan Boyle has more on the story.
So it is a who's who of New Space companies.
