The US space agency NASA have announced plans to send astronauts back into space!
Since 2011, America have been relying on the Russian space agency to take the country’s spacemen and spacewomen up to the International Space Station but from 2017 the plan is to do it all by themselves again!
Well, not quite by themselves, their getting a private company in to do the work for them so they can focus on the big mission – sending humans to Mars!
Using Russian rockets had been very expensive! Each shuttle seat had cost the US $71 million (that’s £43 million)!
