Where are these alleged costs documented ?

All I've seen yet is from various astronomers who have hedged their
bets with a "I want a brand new instrument" estimates...

And even adding all those guestimates up, I bet you that the DoD
will spend more time on personel this coming new years day than the
sum of your costs.

Get a grip on the scale of things, will ya ?
