Price war to get into space
CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA- Once American commercial companies start flying into space, NASA expects to save millions in not having to pay Russia for a left.
SpaceX and Boeing say they are ready to make their first manned test flights in two-years. NASA choose the companies to move American astronauts to and from the International Space Station.
NASA says the average price for a seat on the SpaceX Dragon and Boeing CST-100 capsules will be under $58-million. The Russians charge $71 million. The NASA administrator says he's tired of writing checks to the Russians.
