Boeing CST-100 illustration Boeing, one of two companies developing commercial crew spacecraft for NASA, announced Friday that its spacecraft will be known as the CST-100 Starliner. Boeing chose the name to tie the vehicle to the company's aviation heritage, which has included aircraft called the Stratoliner and Dreamliner. The company made the announcement at a ceremony at the Kennedy Space Center, where it officially opened its Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility, a renovated shuttle-era Orbiter Processing Facility. Work is underway on a structural test article of the Starliner that will undergo testing early next year. Boeing said the development of the CST-100 Starliner is on track to enter service by the end of 2017.
