ABSTRACT

NASA Commercial Crew Program: Significant Work Remains to Begin Operational Missions to the Space Station, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the GAO [Government Accountability Office] Highlights: "Since retiring the Space Shuttle in 2011, NASA has depended on Russia to transport astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). NASA's Commercial Crew Program is a multibillion dollar effort to re-establish a U.S. capability to get a crew to space, but it is years behind schedule. NASA may have to continue to rely on the Russian transport option or risk losing access to the ISS in 2020."
