Tonight I will be appearing on the first hour of Coast to Coast with George Noory, 10 pm (Pacific), to discuss the decision of NASA, to be announced at 4 pm (Eastern) today, on what company the agency has chosen to build its commercial crew ferry.
As I mentioned earlier, the rumors say it will be Boeing. From my perspective, common sense says it should be SpaceX. We shall see.
This post will remain at the top of the website for the next few hours.
