Next leg in the Commercial Space Race--it's Boeing and SpaceX!

I know everyone's excited about the Mars Rover, but in the manned space arena, NASA has announced the selection of Boeing Space Exploration and SpaceX for final phase developing funding of the Commercial Crew Program.  Sierra Nevada received a smaller award, but it's still in the running.  ATK's Liberty Launch didn't get an award this time.

You can read all about it at Space News.  In the meantime, congrats to these three for completing one more step toward commercial manned space!
