*The claim Sorb is about whether "Suborbital transportation will
exceedhigh-mach air transportation by the year 2020".If they're both zero,
I presume this will be judged FALSE/0 (i.e., zero doesnot exceed zero). Am
I correct?Regards,Neal*

Defense News August 2018: One possible job for SpaceX’s BFR rocket? Taking
the Air Force’s cargo in and out of space.

One possible job for SpaceX’s BFR rocket? Taking the Air Force’s cargo in
and out of space.
“Think about this. Thirty minutes, 150 metric tons, [and] less than the
cost of a C-5,” he continued. In comparison, it would take the service’s
cargo aircraft take anywhere from eight to 10 hours to get to the other
side of the world.


This is turning into a real problem in more two ways:

1) As Neal points out, there is a distinct possibility the both numbers
could be "judged" 0.
2) There is a distinct possibility that 2021 will see non-zero numbers
reported.

Both of these problems could be addressed by a new claim pushing the year
out to, say, 2025, or by a scaled claim of some sort.
