Your earlier post mentioned a unattributed "claim" and unattributed
"assertions", and extrapolated from there. I didn't take it as gospel.

Especially since a space shuttle is a rather complex object, and a
blithe assertion that it could be built as a "single unit" seems a bit
far-fetched.

I'm not a fan of Mr Hatch, but blaming him for the shuttle disaster(s)
is somewhat over the top. Why not blame President Bush? That's the
popular thing nowadays.
