NASA releases RFI for CRS2

Request for Information, that is…and Commercial Resupply Services.

The most interesting paragraphs:

“Berthing will be to a Common Berthing Mechanism (CBM). Docking will be to the new International Docking Adapter (IDA).”

This allowance for berthing and docking vehicles opens up the potential for other commercial vehicles, such as Boeing’s CST-100 – which is currently competing for the right to launch NASA astronauts to the ISS.

More competition is almost always a good thing.
