NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden has been relentless in his advocacy for full funding for commercial crew to enable the United States to end its reliance on Russia for taking crews to and from the International Space Station (ISS). Congress adopted the Senate Appropriations Committee’s decision to move this program out of Exploration and into Space Operations.
