This capsule-like spacecraft will take passengers to and from the International Space Station.
Boeing has unveiled details of its new commercial space taxi, a small vehicle called Starliner that will ferry passengers to and from the International Space Station starting in 2017. The spaceship, formally titled the CST-100, is currently under construction at a massive facility in Florida. In a press conference at Kennedy Space Center, NASA and Boeing announced the name “Starliner” and plans for 2017 test flights. Before Friday’s media event, only sketchy details were known about the commercial space vehicle.
