Kathy Lueders, manager of the International Space Station, or ISS, Transportation Integration Office, participates in a NASA Commercial Crew Program, or CCP, pre-proposal conference. The conference informed prospective companies about the recently released request for contract proposals and updates to the certification requirements for crewed missions to ISS. The two-phase certification process, called Certification Products Contract, or CPC, will enable NASA to eventually purchase service missions to fly astronauts to and from the ISS.
