Submission + - NASA, Congress Reach Accord on Commercial Crew Program (

NASA will select the number of competitors from the current four — SpaceX, Boeing, Blue Origin and Sierra Nevada — to two. A third competitor will be picked for partial funding as a fallback in case both of the main competing companies run into difficulties developing a space craft on time and on budget."
