SpaceX will remain the only private space company in the United States for a couple of years that will deliver people to the ISS.

The first manned flight of the Boeing Starliner spacecraft as part of the Crew Flight Test mission has been postponed to at least the end of 2022, and the first flight to the ISS will take place no earlier than 2023.

NASA has now rerouted astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada on one of the SpaceX Crew Dragon missions. Mann was to pilot the first manned Starliner launch, and Kassadu would fly as part of the spacecraft’s first mission to the ISS.

Initially, the Starliner program meant the launch of the first manned mission in the same year with SpaceX, that is, in 2019. As a result, the Crew Dragon made the first such flight in 2020, and the Boeing spacecraft will do it at the best in the end of 2022.

To date, Starliner has completed only one test flight at the end of 2019. It went through with malfunctions, due to which the docking with the ISS was canceled. The second was originally slated for late 2020, but has yet to take place for various technical reasons.

The week began for the main cryptocurrencies of the world with a rise in price and the establishment of new price highs, and ends with a fall, and quite noticeable. Over the course of a day, Bitcoin loses about 4.5% of its value, and as a result, for 1 BTC now they give not $ 66,000, but about $ 60,500.

After Bitcoin began to fall, Ethereum was still holding, but its rate had already gone down too, dropping below the psychological mark of $ 4,000. Analysts believe that such a fall in cryptocurrencies is due to their sell-off on the part of investors – they are fixing profits against the backdrop of a strong growth in value that has been observed since the end of September. This means that after the current correction, Bitcoin may rush to new heights, but whether altcoins will follow it is a big question.
