Commercial Crew Touts Innovation with Expertise

www.nasa.gov said:

NASA is on the verge of a dramatic and exciting era of spaceflight that will draw on private companies' innovations in using the agency's expertise to send astronauts into orbit, managers of the agency's Commercial Crew Program told a group of employees at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
