NASA will soon be able to send astronauts to the International Space Station from U.S. soil following a public-private partnership between NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Boeing and SpaceX.

The P3 will make the Kennedy Space Center a multiuser spaceport where Space Launch Systems can be created for deep-space missions, as well as low Earth Orbit missions.

Boeing is currently building one of three spacecrafts that will send astronauts to the space station. SpaceX has modified an existing launch pad for NASA use and is working to use a new version of an existing spacecraft to send astronauts to the space station alongside Boeing.

Other private companies, including Amazon and United Launch Alliance, are also part of the public-private partnership working to send the next generation of astronauts to the International Space Station from the U.S.
