NASA May Speed Up COTS Program

NASA has just finished a study at the possibility of speeding up the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program to include crew transport as well as cargo. Currently SpaceX and Orbital Science have been funded to build phase 1, or cargo to orbit, of the COTS program . SpaceX has said they plan to try for the crew portion as well with their Dragon capsule.

This could be very good news for the American space program.
