NASA announces contracts for crew transport vehicles for the ISS
NASA announced today the recipients of contracts for crew transports up to the International Space station. The recipients were SpaceX and Boeing. SpaceX has already unveiled their crew capsule a few months ago, dubbed the Dragon V2.
I still would like to see Sierra Nevada Corporation’s Dream Chaser completed as it’s maybe the closest thing to a Star Trek shuttle pod. Resembles a small space shuttle, rides up on a rocket but glides back down to earth.
