Boeing Ramps up Production of its CST-100 Starliner

Posted on January 5, 2016 linda strong boeing aircraft

A couple of weeks after having received an order for a crewed mission into space by NASA, Boeing is busy ramping up production of its CST-100 Starliner space capsule. This is the second crewed mission that NASA has ordered from Boeing and the aircraft company is working hard to help bring the U.S. space agency one step closer to launching astronauts to the International Space Station from U.S. soil.

The CST-Starliner is currently under development at the company’s Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility located at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, with additional rocket parts being made in Alabama and installation of flight simulators being performed at Boeing’s facilities in St. Louis, Missouri. With Boeing’s Starliner having a maximum of seven astronauts per trip, as opposed to the Russian Soyuz which can only carry three passengers at a time, NASA hopes to increase its capabilities and begin launching astronauts to low earth orbit and the International Space Station in less than two years.
