What it's like to fly the Boeing Starliner CST-100 Spaceship

Share This Content
NASA recently announced who will be flying on the first commercial crew flights and both Boeing and SpaceX are racing to get their spaceships, their launch sites AND their spacesuits ready to return humans to space from US soil.

Boeing’s spaceship is the CST-100 Starliner, a capsule shaped spacecraft that can fly up to 7 astronauts to space. For NASA missions to the International Space Station, it will fly up to 4 astronauts at a time, filling the rest of the capsule with cargo.

The Starliner will launch on top of perhaps the most reliable rocket ever made. ULA’s Atlas V with 2 strap on solid rocket motors and 2 RL-10 upper stage engines. A configuration that an Atlas 5 has never actually flown before, but all the hardware has been flown many times throughout history.
