Yesterday, the Crew Space Transportation (CST-100) Crew Space Transportation Crew capsule was introduced yesterday.

"We are moving into a commercial space market and need to consider our potential customers - beyond NASA - and their needs within a commercial spacecraft," said Chris Ferguson, former commander of the Space Shuttle Atlantis and current director. of Boeing's Crew and Mission Operations for the Commercial Crew Program.

Boeing engineers took advantage of the multi-year experience in the commercial and governmental aerospace sector to design the capsule's interior.

Rachelle Ornan, regional director for Boeing sales and marketing, explained how a family color like blue helps passengers to keep the sky's earthly vision.

The CST-100, developed as part of a NASA integrated business capacity-building initiative, has been designed to deliver up to seven crew members or a crew and load mix for low orbit destinations such as International Space Station and a future Bigelow station.
