NASA IG Final Report: NASA's Management of the Commercial Crew Program | SpaceRef

NASA IG Final Report: NASA's Management of the Commercial Crew Program | SpaceRef | Program and Project Management - with Risk and CMMI coverage | Scoop.it

NASA Inspector General Paul Martin today released a report examining NASA's efforts to partner with private industry to develop a "commercial crew" capability to transport U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).  Since the end of the Space Shuttle Program in July 2011, the United States has lacked a domestic capability to transport crew and - until recently - cargo to the ISS.  Consequently, NASA has been relying on the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) for crew transportation.  Between 2012 and 2017, NASA will pay Roscosmos $1.7 billion to ferry 30 NASA astronauts and international partners to and from the ISS at prices ranging from $47 million to more than $70 million per person.  After 2017, NASA hopes to obtain transportation to the ISS from American spaceflight companies.
