Throughout the last 50 years, Boeing and its heritage companies have been integral in every major endeavor to escape Earth’s gravity. From the first Mercury capsule, to the current International Space Station, and beyond to the Space Launch System, Boeing has and will take humans and technology farther than they’ve ever been.
The International Space Station is a lab like no other. There NASA researches new technologies and methods of maintaining life in space so that astronauts can safely explore Mars and beyond. Boeing is the prime contractor for the ISS.
NASA is setting its eyes on the exploration of Mars, an over two year-long journey that will make history. Today's children will be the first explorers of our neighboring planet with help from Boeing technology to discover ground humans humans have yet to see.
