Space Adventures, Ltd., the only company to have arranged for private citizens to fly to space, congratulates Boeing on winning the final round of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program contract to complete development of their Crew Space Transportation-100 (CST-100) vehicle.  The Commercial Crew Transportation Capability Contract (CCtCAP) is the latest award in the NASA-sponsored program that seeks to develop a U.S. commercial transportation capability to fly crew to the International Space Station (ISS).

 

In 2010, Space Adventures and Boeing announced a memorandum of agreement regarding the marketing of passenger seats aboard the CST-100 to the ISS.  “We congratulate Boeing on this significant milestone. Our goal, at Space Adventures, is to open the space frontier to all and with this latest contract award, Boeing is one step closer to providing opportunities for our clients to experience space,” said Eric Anderson, Chairman, Space Adventures. “We look forward to working with Boeing in the coming months to finalize details of our passenger experience.”
