Ten years ago this month, two Russian cosmonauts and one U.S. astronaut arrived at the International Space Station, a historic event in space exploration that marked the start of a continuous presence on this laboratory that circles the earth some 220 miles (400 kilometers) out in space.
Boeing engineers are making good progress on the proposed Crew Space Transportation-100 capsule that could be used to transport up to seven people into low Earth orbit and to the International Space Station. The capsule is Boeing’s entry for a NASA competition to replace the retiring space shuttles with commercial spacecraft.
Boeing is part of an industry team bidding to supply the
U.S. Navy with an advanced hovercraft that will float on a cushion of air over water or land and transport troops, equipment, supplies and weapons from ships to landing zones.
