    A major U.S. rocket manufacturer says it may buy Russian engines for the launch vehicle Taurus Two being developed for NASA. Aerojet is in talks over the possible deal after successful lengthy tests of the Russian NK-33 engine. The company bought the same model in the mid-90's and this time might need up to 70. The rocket engine is produced in Central Russia's Samara region and was first developed 40 years ago.
