Narrator: NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden visited the agency's Dryden Flight Research Center May 22, where he flew approach-and-landing simulations of Sierra Nevada Corporation’s Dream Chaser spacecraft. A test vehicle of the company’s spacecraft recently arrived at Dryden for a series of tests, culminating with a free-flight demonstration later this year.

Narrator: Sierra Nevada Corporation is working with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program to make human spaceflight services available for government and commercial customers.
