NASA's Commercial Crew Program is guiding development of several spacecraft and rockets that are expected to carry astronauts to the International Space Station by the middle of the decade. Based at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the innovative program calls for a close partnership with private companies that allows industry to make advances in technology and manufacturing while NASA blends in its own expertise gained during 50 years of launching humans into space. NASA has teamed up with several companies who are designing spacecraft ranging from capsules to space planes that can safely transport astronauts to and from the space station. In a break with past approaches, the companies are expected to use their craft to carry others into space, too. The result for NASA is expected to be more reliable, safer and more cost effective access to space.
