NASA Announces Boeing and Space Crews

Since then, NASA has been forced to rely exclusively on Russia's increasingly expensive Soyuz spaceships to get to the International Space Station (ISS), in which the U.S. government has invested about $100 billion. "After the uncrewed flight tests, both companies will execute a flight test with crew prior to being certified by NASA for crew rotation missions".

NASA released an updated schedule of commercial crew test flights August 2 that confirms Boeing's revised plans as well as delays for SpaceX's two demonstration missions.

The news, announced on NASA's Commercial Crew program blog, doesn't come as a surprise.

In addition to asking for the cases to be dismissed, Jones also wants Pozner's family to pay him more than $100,000 in court fees. Jones has repeatedly produced conspiracy theories related to the Sandy Hook shooting, which occurred on December 14, 2012.

Back in 2014, the USA agreed to pay Elon Musk's aerospace company SpaceX $2.6 billion for a spacecraft that could carry the nation's astronauts into orbit. Coupled with the technical challenges inherent in any human spaceflight development program, the systems have been repeatedly delayed and NASA's dependence on Russian Federation extended.

Now, SpaceX is targeting November for its inaugural Crew Dragon test flight. Anyone now assigned to a space mission also won't be picked for the Boeing and SpaceX flights, NASA told Business Insider.

NASA's Commercial Crew Program, as it's called, will soon launch launch one uncrewed and two crewed test flights of each new spacecraft. In July, the Government Accounting Office (GAO), an independent agency that investigates federal spending for Congress, released a report predicting that SpaceX would complete its certification process in February 2020; Boeing is likely to wrap it up a month earlier. He made the announcement via telecon.

The move was prompted after one of the team's creditors approached the United Kingdom courts in order to get a "wind up" notice against the team.

SAVE THE DATE. On Thursday, NASA announced that SpaceX's Crew Dragon (its spacecraft created to transport astronauts) will be ready for an uncrewed test in November 2018 and a crewed test in April 2019.

SpaceX designed its Crew Dragon spacecraft to launch atop the company's Falcon 9 rocket from historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Friday's announcement will clarify who will fly on which spacecraft for the first human test flight and the first mission to the ISS. "Two of those demonstrations are uncrewed flight tests, known as Orbital Flight Test for Boeing, and Demo-1 for SpaceX". Surprisingly, only 3.0 percent of adults in the survey said NASA's top focus should be sending astronauts to the moon, while a mere 8.0 percent said a human trip to Mars or other planets should be a top priority. Boeing and SpaceX volunteered to perform these tests to demonstrate their systems are safe for crew. For CST-100 Starliner, there will be one from NASA and one from Boeing.
