Space Travel. NASA, Boeing, SpaceX Discuss Plan for Launching American Astronauts from U.S. in 2017.

NASA, Boeing and SpaceX will hold a news briefing on NASA Television at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston at noon EST (11 a.m. CST) Monday, Jan. 26, to highlight key development activities, test plans and objectives for achieving certification of two American crew transportation systems.

Under Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) contracts for NASA’s Launch America initiative, Boeing and SpaceX will develop safe and reliable crew transportation to and from the International Space Station on American spacecraft launched from the United States. This initiative returns the American industry to the forefront of human exploration technology and operations and ends the nation’s sole reliance on Russia for crew transportation to the space station.

Space Travel. The panelists are:

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

Johnson Space Center Director Ellen Ochoa.

Commercial Crew Program Manager Kathy Lueders.

Vice President and General Manager of Boeing Space Exploration John Elbon.

President and Chief Operating Officer of SpaceX Gwynne Shotwell.

NASA astronaut Mike Fincke.
