Removing copyvio text[edit]

I've removed some text, first a couple of days ago, and again just now. There seems to be confusion about what text is PD and what isn't.

I have no idea why the content has been replaced with the edit summary "Re-writing, paraphrasing and referencing to comply with WP:Public domain#Government works, Thanks." but it is wrong, neither of the sites listed above are government, or government affiliated, the first is the website of "The Planetary Society is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization." and the second is the a personal blog, who states " I don't have any formal tie to NASA or planetary exploration (although I use data from NASA's Earth science missions in my professional work as an ecologist)." The close paraphrased/verbatim text that I identified in my DYK review as being from NASA I left, as that is acceptable, the content I removed is by no stretch of the imagination PD, and it worries me that you think it is.

I've revised the importance of this article for WikiProject Spaceflight from Low to Mid, and added to the article a section explicitly discussing launch options. Both of these are because the importance of this mission takes on a new meaning (i.e. added politics) in the context of it being a possible payload for SLS. (sdsds - talk) 00:00, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
