Astronauts? Check. Available Flights to the International Space Station? Um, Ottawa we a Problem

On July 2 I was live on CTV News Channel discussing Canada’s astronaut core and the lack of flights available to them to serve on the International Space Station until at least 2017. Unfortunately the interview was short and I was unable to bring up all the points I wanted to. This included the fact that a new commercial option(s) in the U.S. may be available in 2017 with the price per seat being as low as $20 million as compared to the current $70 million required by the Russians for which the U.S. is now paying.
