“The NASA manager overseeing development of Boeing and SpaceX’s commercial crew ferry ships says the space agency has approved SpaceX’s proposal to strap in astronauts atop Falcon 9 rockets, then fuel the launchers in the final hour of the countdown as the company does for its uncrewed missions.”

Excellent news.

This is great news. It has been nearly 7 years since the United State launched humans into space. This is longer than the gap between the Apollo-Soyuz mission and the first launch of the Space Shuttle.
