NASA is considering purchasing two more rides to the International Space Station from the Russian space agency. NASA is worried about delays in its commercial crew program. Since the end of the shuttle program, NASA has relied on Russia to ferry astronauts to the space station. Private companies SpaceX and Boeing are developing crew transport vehicles, which they will test launch before the end of the year.
