Apollo-Soyuz , CRV , X-15[edit]

I've noted Apollo-Soyuz as joint, since it seemed a bit silly to note that for ISS but not ASTP.

Is it worth adding the Crew Return Vehicle as an unbuilt project? Shuttle-C, as well, but there's no article on that yet. ("Unbuilt" may also be better phrased as "cancelled", since some of these programs did progress to hardware in some form or another)

Should the X-15 be included? US Government-funded and supported program, and whilst it was only suborbital it did make a number of spaceflights (although the number depends on which definition you use). Shimgray 15:56, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I've added the X-15, but not the CRV, and broken it down into current / past / cancelled categories Shimgray 01:02, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Constellation Program[edit]

Current revision of this template lists it as cancelled. As far as I'm aware this is not yet the case. Whilst cancellation has been proposed by President Obama it has not yet passed into law and is likely to face significant opposition. Revert until it is? Xmp (talk) 14:37, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
