Human Space Exploration Update (June 26 – July 7, 2017)

Commercial Crew Progress:  Commercial Crew providers making “significant progress” toward first flights  NASA’s Commercial Crew Program partners, Boeing and the CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX and the Crewed Dragon, are progressing toward unpiloted test flights in late 2017 and 2018. Updates on the Commercial Crew program development efforts were presented to NASA’s Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel last month.

Citizens for Space Exploration – a pro-space, taxpayer, grassroots advocacy group Citizens Space Explorateion_logo( – has traveled to Washington, D.C. the past 24 years to meet face-to-face with Members/staff of Congress to discuss the value of America’s investment in space exploration. In order to sustain that dialogue on a regular basis, Citizens distributes “Space Exploration Update” to Congressional offices on a weekly basis. The intent is to provide an easy, quick way to stay abreast of key human space exploration program and policy developments.
