    Nothing in the linked to article suggests AeroJet could lose most of its business? Hell even the accident was with a old Russian engine they just refurbish and remarket?

    If they were in trouble it could be bad. They’re about the only folks left in the business in the US. Market was so bad everyone else closed or sold out. (Just like most of aerospace in the US.) Orbital technologies hoped they could leverage DreamChaser and SNC financial support to get into that market.
