KLC Minotaur IV Launch = Enormous Waste of Money

Air Force spokesman Joe Davidson is in Kodiak helping coordinate the launch. He reported Thursday that the total cost of the seven satellites is $120 million. The cost of the Minotaur IV rocket including a new propulsion system is $50 million. (source: KMXT, Kodiak public radio)
This one launch would have paid for two brand new high schools in Kodiak; instead, local property owners will bear the burden of paying for the new school.
