Best article I’ve seen yet on how NASA judged the CCtCAP competitors

Great article by Aviation Week.

Reader’s Digest version:

  • Boeing was rated technically “Excellent”, and was considered the least risk.
  • SpaceX was rated technically “Very Good” (about 6% lower than Boeing’s score), but was judged to be the project furthest ahead with lots of schedule margin in case there are some unforeseen hiccups.
  • As I suspected and guessed in a post below, SNC came in last technically, and their schedule seemed to carry the most risk.

So there you go. Definitely read the whole article, though.
