Quotes

"There is a larger issue, beyond maintaining our access to the space station," Hermann said. "Further exploration of space requires thinking creatively and in new ways about vehicles for getting into space. Therefore, getting that creativity in the private sector involved in thinking seems to have a better chance of keeping America's edge in space exploration. Our failure to have any near term alternative to the shuttle program, which needed to be phased out, has created a dependency which in the long run is not ideal for our continued scientific effort in space."
...Boeing's proposal was more expensive, in part because the Atlas 5 is more expensive than the Falcon 9. "We basically awarded based on the proposal that we were given" Lueders said
"Our specialist teams have watched the development of these new spacecraft during earlier development phases, and are confident they will meet the demands" said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
"The reason I haven't taken SpaceX public is the goals of SpaceX are very long-term, which is to establish a city on Mars" Musk said
