Congrats to Boeing

NASA orders second Boeing Crew Mission to ISS. Not unexpected (2 missions per contractor is guaranteed in the CCtCAP), but still a major milestone for both NASA and Boeing.

Congrats to both!!

This is the third in a series of four guaranteed orders NASA will make under the Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) contracts. Boeing and SpaceX received their first orders in May and November, respectively, and have started planning for, building and procuring the necessary hardware and assets to carry out their first missions for the agency. NASA will identify at a later time which company will fly a mission to the station first.
