Not sure on this, but I believe the US launched satellites for it's allies, Canada's Alouette for ie. Then when NASA was cut so drastically, the US relied on Russia. And outsourced all the manufacturing.I have no idea who has the capacity to launch.

Well, it may be time for the U.S. to start manufacturing these rocket engines and create more jobs.

Makes sense US, but when all the capacity and technology has been shipped to China and India, it would take years.

I just read the U.S. has two years worth of stockpiled rocket engines and I'm sure they could buy more if needed from other Europen countries; perhaps France or Britain.
