Crew Transportation Announcement Today

NASA will make a major announcement today at 4 p.m. EDT regarding the return of human spaceflight launches to the United States. Whoever is chosen will have the goal to achieve certification of the system – including a test flight to the International Space Station with a NASA astronaut — in 2017, returning a critical capability to America and greatly expanding the scientific research potential of the orbiting laboratory. Watch the announcement live on NASA TV at and find out details throughout the day on the Commercial Crew Program blog.

  1. I wish I was more surprised that NASA would cater to their old in bed buddy boeing, it is because of actions like this that many in this country want to stop funding NASA all together, your funding entities based on outdated and political criteria, hardly the position a entity designed for science should behave. From the il contrived SLS (which flys boeings spaceship to no where) to the extra funding doled out to the largest company presenting the simplest and most basic of capsule designs. It seems NASA is more about lining the pockets of some large multinational and their lobbyists rather than progressing human knowledge and understanding of our universe, sad but not surprising.

  2. Mmm… panic over the mess in the Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia? Dragon-X to fly to the ISS (it is now proven) and leave Orion to do deep space missions. a kind of multi-sourced mixed fleet? Instead of all the eggs in one basket ala’ Shuttle? Just wish NASA would get a move on and stop fannying about. as for Boeing (and Lockheed-Martin) they are toooo big, They need trimming….
