According to an audit report, NASA "overpaid" Boeing by hundreds of millions of dollars on a fixed contract to develop a spaceship to carry astronauts to the International Space Station. The US hired Boeing and SpaceX under multi-billion dollar contracts, with the two companies already two years behind schedule. NASA paid an additional $287.2 million above Boeing's fixed prices to mitigate a perceived 18-month gap in ISS flights.
