Boeing Delays Test so SpaceX Could Become Only US Manned Option

Boeing has delayed by at least three months its first uncrewed flight to the International Space Station under NASA’s human spaceflight program and pushed its crewed flight until November. SpaceX has just successfully completed its first uncrewed test flight. If SpaceX completes its planned crewed mission in July, then SpaceX will be the only US option for manned missions for many months and possibly longer.

Given the history of Boeing, it would not be surprising if it took them one or two years to get their uncrewed test and then their first crewed mission completed. NASA will not let them rusk because safety will be the top priority.
