[Ben]:Boeing launches huge test rocket No discussion found
Story here

Nice sized little booster there. This test run fired a dummy payload and two little University satellites, but according to Space.com the eventual total payload capacity will be 13,000kg (about 14.33 tons). To those not paying attention to space projects, that's HUGE. Currently it costs about $10,000 to put a single kilogram into orbit. That's about what this run cost - the military paid $140,000,000 to see the Delta 4 Heavy fly. Maybe that cost will come down a bit as time goes on.
