Glover, who also joined NASA in 2013, summed it up simply. "She is in touch with the family as her preparations are going on for the mission", she said. Both Boeing's CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX's Crew Dragon will need to meet stringent safety requirements and prove they are fit for regular flights. The crewed flight tests will mostly mirror the uncrewed missions, except a flight commander and pilot will be manning each mission once they are ready for a human crew.
Those launch targets may change.
For SpaceX's test flight, NASA assigned Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley, both members of several Endeavour and Atlantis missions.
Crew for each flight will include at least a flight commander and a pilot. The unmanned test flight is scheduled for late 2018 or early 2019. With NASA as the anchor customer, Boeing's Starliner is setting the foundation for commercial passenger flights to and from low-Earth orbit destinations, to include worldwide astronauts, scientists and even tourists. In the meantime, NASA will still rely on Russian Federation to keep Americans flying in space. Boeing received a $4.2 billion contract, and SpaceX's was for $2.6 billion.
