It will be the first launch of an astronaut carrying capable capsule from American soil since the retirement of the space shuttles in 2011.

Both companies are targeting uncrewed test flight of their vehicles starting in 2019.

In addition, the Agency also published a schedule of test flights of the ships of the CTS-100 Starliner, designed by a group of Boeing.

NASA is reportedly preparing to launch an extensive safety review of SpaceX and Boeing, prompted by Elon Musk's public use of marijuana on a Joe Rogan podcast.

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported NASA is launching a major review of the safety "cultures" at both Boeing and SpaceX. The review would be a months-long assessment that would involve hundreds of interviews created to assess the culture of the workplaces, a NASA spokesperson said in a statement to The Verge.

It's May's deal or no Brexit, Amber Rudd tells warring MPs
An EU summit is taking place in Brussels on Sunday to "finalise and formalise" the draft deal, and if it is agreed, it will then be voted on in the House of Commons.

In 2014, SpaceX and Boeing were awarded NASA contracts to build separate capsules to launch astronauts to the space station, with a total value worth up to 6.8 billion US dollars.

USA space agency NASA said on Tuesday it would review the workplace safety culture at SpaceX and Boeing Co, as the two companies gear up to fly astronauts to the International Space Station. Now, four years later, SpaceX is at the forefront of re-usable, cost-effective rocket technology and may even beat NASA when it comes to bringing humans to the Red Planet. The statement continued, NASA will conduct a cultural assessment study in coordination with its commercial partners to ensure the companies are meeting NASA's requirements for workplace safety, including the adherence to a drug-free environment.

"Human spaceflight is the core mission of our company", SpaceX said in a statement. "As always, NASA will ensure they do so". Both companies are scheduled to make uncrewed and crewed test flights next year.

Starliner will fly atop United Launch Alliance Atlas V rockets for the foreseeable future.

Boeing also insisted its culture "ensures the integrity, safety, and quality of our products, our people and their work environment", a spokesman said in a statement emailed to AFP. More specifically, individuals with high levels of government security clearance are under obligation to stay drug-free.
