Two Views: Dragon Vs CST-100

How NASA's New Spaceships Stack Up, NPR

"Boeing and SpaceX both have new displays standard on every model. But Keith Cowing says there is a difference in the way they look. The Boeing one does harken back to Apollo," he says. "The SpaceX one, I've been in there, and it's got a sci-fi vibe to it." SpaceX does look sleeker, and it'd be his first choice. But honestly? He'd fly in either one, if it meant going to space."

NASA misses chance to revitalize space program, Newt Gingrich, CNN

"The largest contract in a program designed to boost competition within the commercial space industry went to Boeing -- the gigantic, heavily subsidized government contractor with a history of huge cost overruns. Although SpaceX did win a smaller prize of its own, the fact that the old incumbent is getting a contract to provide services to the space station is going to limit the promise of America's commercial space industry."
