Chances for satellite fuel depot get smaller

Dangit.  One of the two companies that was trying to create a satellite repair-and-refueling system has had its funding mostly taken away.  This sucks, because building our orbital infrastructure is really ****ing important if we want to actually do anything in space, besides send a couple of people or robots to other planets, and when I first heard about these guys this past fall I was really hoping it might be a sign of things to come.  Ah, well, economics trumps everything, I guess…
