After NASA’s (National aeronautics and space administration) shuttles retired in 2011 (Discovery, Endeavour and Atlantis shuttles), NASA has been depending on Russia for transporting astronauts to International Space Station. This Expensive reliance will end now as Boeing and SpaceX will use crew capsules to transport from Cape Canaveral. The landing of Atlantis shuttle on June 21, 2011 ended the 30 year space shuttle programme of NASA, now the goal of 2017 has been set for Commercial Crew Program.
