    The concept of airbags protecting passengers has been around for decades, but the CST-100 Starliner team is transforming that technology by super-sizing what is typically an interior feature, and moving it to the spacecraft’s exterior. The goal of the landing


Commercial crew transportation is critical to the sustainment and utilization of the International Space Station, a unique orbital laboratory that caters to diverse scientific investigations driving discovery on Earth, while providing a technological testbed for future deep space missions. The Starliner will provide reliable access to assets in low-Earth orbit, returning American human space capability. Boeing designed the Starliner to be compatible with a variety of expendable rockets and selected United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V vehicle to launch the Starliner test flights and missions.
