+ - NASA, Congress Reach Accord on Commercial Crew Program->

MarkWhittington writes: "NASA and Congress have reached a deal on how to proceed with the commercial crew program that provides government subsidies to pay for the development of private spacecraft. 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."
