News Conference To Be Held Friday At 1000 EDT
NASA will host a news briefing from Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 1000 EDT Friday announcing new agreements with industry partners for its Commercial Crew integrated Capability (CCiCap) initiative. Through CCiCap, NASA is stimulating the private sector to develop and demonstrate human spaceflight capabilities that could ultimately lead to the availability of commercial human spaceflight services for both commercial and government customers.
CCiCap is an initiative of NASA's Commercial Crew Program and a priority of the Obama Administration. The objective of the program is to facilitate the development of a U.S. commercial crew space transportation capability with the goal of achieving safe, reliable and cost-effective access to and from low Earth orbit and the International Space Station. After the capability is matured, NASA could purchase commercial services to meet its space station crew transportation needs.
Those scheduled to speak at the news conference include:
- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
- Kennedy Space Center Director Robert Cabana
- Commercial Crew Program Manager Ed Mango
