In the News
CSCA interim president Marc Boucher was live on CTV News Channel Wednesday, July 2, 2014 discussing Canada’s astronaut core and the lack of flights available to them to serve on the International Space Station until at least 2017. Unfortunately the interview was short and Marc was unable to bring up all the points he wanted to. This included the fact that a new commercial option(s) in the U.S. may be available in 2017 with the price per seat being as low as $20 million as compared to the current $70 million required by the Russians for which the U.S. is now paying.
You can watch the interview on the CTV News website.
