NASA Awards to Develop Commercial Crew Transport


A briefing at the Kennedy Space Center details NASA’s recent awards of more than $269 million for the continued development of commercial transportation systems to carry astronauts to and from low-Earth orbit. Four U.S. companies received the awards in the second round of NASA’s Commercial Crew Development, or CCDev, effort. Commercial crew transport will free NASA to concentrate on developing and building new technologies for human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit.
