NASA will announce crews for SpaceX and Boeing crewed missions tomorrow

NASA will announce on Friday, Aug. 3, the astronauts assigned to crew the first flight tests and missions of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon.

There are still unmanned certification flights for both Boeing and SpaceX.

They are both hoping for the first crewed missions in mid-2019. NASA expects that timeline could slip to late 2019 or 2020.

The last time a US spaceship launched a crewed mission was a 2011 space shuttle mission.

It will have been around ten years of Americans launching on Russian Soyuz rockets, when NASA next flies using a US rocket.

    NASA, which is making a BIG comeback under the Trump Administration, has just named 9 astronauts for Boeing and Spacex space flights. We have the greatest facilities in the world and we are now letting the private sector pay to use them. Exciting things happening. Space Force!

    SPACE FORCE, homeys! Get that?
