RSC Energia Predicts Loss of Monopoly in Transporting Astronauts to ISS

The Russian Rocket and Space Corporation Energia might lose its monopoly in rendering transport services to and from the International Space Station after 2018.

      It was stated in the corporation's annual report of 2015.

      "The number of astronauts annually transported by the Russian piloted spacecrafts Soyuz makes 12 people. Now RSC Energia is a monopolist in this market, however after 2018 the American companies Boeing (the Starliner spacecraft) and SpaceX (the Crew Dragon spacecraft) may become its competitors. The Sierra Nevada Corporation company is also developing a transport shuttlecraft (Dream Chaser)", — the report reads.
