NASA's program to launch U.S. astronauts with Boeing and SpaceX is likely to be delayed further, the Government Accountability Office said in a report published Wednesday. "Additional delays could result in a gap in U.S. access to the space station," the government watchdog says. NASA "does not have a contingency plan for ensuring uninterrupted U.S. access," the GAO said.
