Prepared statements:
Cristina Chaplain (GAO)
“Both Boeing and Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) are making progress toward their goal of being able to transport American astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS). However, both continue to experience schedule delays. Such delays could jeopardize the ability of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Commercial Crew Program to certify either company’s option–that is, to ensure that either option meets NASA standards for human spaceflight–before the seats the agency has contracted for on Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft run out in 2019.”
