Sierra Nevada Dream Chaser under construction in Colorado

All of our local TV stations and newspapers had a release today about SNC's Dream Chaser being built in Louisville, Colorado. Our local Mars Society chapter may make an effort to visit the plant and get a closeup of the space plane, a reentry system similar to the Space Shuttle.
This is strictly the cargo version, designed to haul cargo to, and return sensitive experiments back to Earth, from ISS.

Ooh, nice. The Shuttle, as it ought to have been.

Any word on what the first one will be called?
