$BA

Friday, NASA named 9 astronauts for its 1st manned space launches from US soil since the space shuttle program ended in Y 2011.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) announcement signals a milestone in the US space program championed by President Donald Trump, with its shift to the private sector for ferrying cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station.

Since the space shuttle program was shut down, the US space agency NASA relied on Russia to fly astronauts to space station, a $100-B orbital research laboratory that flies about 250 miles (402 km) above Earth.

The astronauts named Friday will be carried aloft aboard spacecraft developed by entrepreneur Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) crewing 1st the test flights, and then missions involving both Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX’s Crew Dragon.

The 1st flight is expected sometime in  Y 2019.
