How much does it cost to put stuff in space?

Allowing for inflation, comparing late 1960s dollars to modern dollars, a Saturn V cost about a half billion dollars to build and fly, and a shuttle costs about a billion just to fly. (Construction costs are about 4 billion, but obviously you can amortize them over time, which you couldn't with a Saturn.)
