Posted: Sat, Nov 21, 2015, 7:10 PM ET (0010 GMT)
Dragon V2 unveiing (J. Foust) NASA announced late Friday that it is ordering the first commercial crew mission with SpaceX, following up a similar order with Boeing earlier this year. NASA made the order for the first post-certification mission after SpaceX completed a critical design review of the crew version of the Dragon spacecraft. The order is one of at least two, and up to six, missions included in SpaceX's commercial crew contract it received from NASA last year. NASA said it will decide at a later date whether Boeing, which received its first order for a mission in May, or SpaceX will fly the first mission.
