Commercial Crew: Up to the Minute
Boeing and SpaceX Selected to Build America's New Crew Space Transportation System
The Boeing CST-100 and SpaceX Dragon version 2 have been tapped by NASA to carry astronauts to the International Space Station on missions that will herald a new era in space transportation driven by private companies who also will be able to market their launch services to people around the world.
The agency's Commercial Crew Program will advise the companies as they advance from design to flight test vehicle to operational spacecraft, along with all the associated ground support, and launch and recovery systems. You can watch NASA Administrator Charles Bolden announce the contracts here.
NASA and its aerospace industry partners have marked their calendars for 2017 with the goal of certification – including at least one test flight to the International Space Station with a NASA astronaut aboard. It might seem like three years is far on the horizon, but it's closer than you think.
