Boeing Snags $92 Million NASA Deal

Boeing secured one of four Space Act Agreements in the second round of NASA’s Commercial Crew Development project, worth $92 million.

The contracts function “to advance commercial crew space transportation system concepts and mature the design and development of elements of their systems, such as launch vehicles and spacecraft.”

“We’re committed to safely transporting U.S. astronauts on American-made spacecraft and ending the outsourcing of this work to foreign governments, ” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said. “These agreements are significant milestones in NASA’s plans to take advantage of American ingenuity to get to low-Earth orbit, so we can concentrate our resources on deep space exploration.”
