Space is getting crowded. NASA will begin working with yet another private space company to keep the International Space Station stocked through 2024.
In addition to another company, the ISS will also eventually see another crew member. The extra flight capacity under the new contracts will eventually allow the station to maintain a seven-person crew. Right now, it only holds six. (Video via NASA)
