NASA Commercial Crew Program Update:

Sierra Nevada Corp. (SNC) Space Systems of Louisville, Colo., has completed its first major, comprehensive safety review of its Dream Chaser Space System. This is the company’s latest paid-for-performance milestone with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program (CCP), which is working with commercial space partners to develop capabilities to launch U.S. astronauts from American soil in the next few years.

The Integrated Systems Safety Analysis Review provided NASA with hazard reports and safety and reliability plans for the major components of the company’s integrated crew transportation system, including the Dream Chaser spacecraft, United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, and flight and ground systems.

    I`m sorry but my original comment ended up unintentional on another article. I intended to answer here.
    I am a little disappointed with what SNC is doing here. They should change from the Hybrid solid rockets to liquid rockets then they wouldn`t have to rebuild the rockets after every flight. They won`t make any cost savings unless they do. They should also build their own reusable flyback first stage so they can compete with other companies like SpaceX. It is fine to start where they have but in order to compete fully they must have plans to upgrade and bring down costs.
