Regarding space, Virgin Galactic is testing again and getting the design nailed down.

SpaceX is launching more routinely than the Shuttle ever could and the costs keep coming down.

At today's prices, and this will only get worse for the taxpayer, you can launch 15 times with SpaceX versus 1 time with SLS (SLS is currently pegged at $1.15 B per launch). 

But that may not matter as SLS still isn't out of the PowerPoint stages with the gov't after 3 years.  By way of comparison, BFR is in the hangar being built right now!
