NASA has posted the Selection Statement in which Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations William Gerstenmaier explains why the space agency decided to award $1.1 billion in Commercia Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCAP) funding to Boeing, Sierra Nevada Corporation and SpaceX.
The document includes ratings for the proposals submitted by all three companies as well as the one from ATK, which did not receive funding. NASA eliminated three other applicants for failing to meet bid requirements.
It’s going to take me a while to read through the Selection Statement. If you want to download the PDF document, click here.
