A cosmic race is currently taking place. This is not between the United States and Russia, nor other nations, but that is definitely the case. This is a race between SpaceX and Boeing to be the first company to deliver a crew to NASA, and from the outset is full of twists and turns.
Now, a new pre-planning schedule for NASA The Commercial Crew program suggests that eventually SpaceX can be a winner, but that's far from certain.
NASA hired Boeing to build Starliner, and tossed money into SpaceX to build the Crew Dragon. Both spacecraft will eventually take NASA astronauts into space from American soil, which is a big deal for the space agency, but none of the companies have kept their promises. Starliner and Crew Dragon did not take a person from the Earth at this time. SpaceX sent an empty dragon to the crew of the International Space Station, which is a significant milestone, but an explosion (sorry, "anomaly") questioned his progress. It seemed to open Boeing's door to take the lead and to be the first to fulfill his promise to NASA. However, if the dates released in the new scheduling schedule prove to be correct, SpaceX will be the first to bring NASA crew into space. and at this point they are not even considered as official target dates. The dates in the report are entirely based on the available windows where the space station can receive the spacecraft and when the crew will be available to board.
Yet while the dates are not even close to being put in stone, they show that NASA has a serious faith in SpaceX to correct any problem caused by the explosion of its crew dragon during testing and return your program to the track quickly. Maybe even more than that, it shows that NASA does not believe that Boeing's Starliner will be ready to transfer people soon.
