shuttle costs

from what i've been reading after googling around the shuttle cost $10 billion to develop/build in the '70's. the cost of a shuttle launch is up to $1.3 billion. the total cost of the program is approaching $150 billion dollars.

and a 5 inch piece of foam weighing less than an ounce can turn the shuttle into a big fireworks display?

what's wrong with that picture?

maybe it's time to get the cost of foam tiles and adhesive up into the billion dollar mark instead of that dollar store stuff they're obviously using now.
