Northrop Grumman–Boeing team unveils CEV idea

The Northrop Grumman–Boeing Crew Exploration Vehicle team last month unveiled its engineering approach to the spacecraft. NASA's CEV, a successor to the Space Shuttle, is expected to carry astronauts to the moon, Mars and beyond in coming decades. The vehicle is designed to be carried into space aboard a rocket based on the solid rocket booster technology that helps power the early phases of current Shuttle flights. NASA expects to select a CEV prime contractor in the spring of 2006.
