Nasa's safety concerns at Boeing and SpaceX

Post by brian livesey »

Nasa has expressed concerns about design safety from the competing Boeing and SpaceX contractors to provide rocket and capsule systems for astronauts to return to the ISS ( International Space Station ). Nasa is paying SpaceX and Boeing $2.6bn and $4.2bn, respectively.
The space agency's safety advisory panel for the contracts has drawn attention to four "key risk items" in its 2018 annual report. Two people with hands-on knowledge of the programme have gone further with safety concerns and produced a risk ledger that identifies 30 to 35 technical concerns, each for Boeing and SpaceX.
The first scheduled unmanned space test flight, under Nasa's Commercial Crew Program, is set for March 2.

It is a pity NASA themselves did not care as much about safety regarding Challenger and other such problems talk about the pot calling the kettle black
