NASA and Boeing are rundown media now to talk about the status of the Boeing Orbital Flight Test, and the test purposes that have been, and are anticipated to be, completed pertaining to NASA's Commercial Crew Program. In addition, NASA formed the Commercial Crew Program to promote the development of a U. S. commercial team space transportation capability with the goal of attaining secure, dependable and cost-efficient accessibility to and from the space terminal and other locations in low-Earth orbit. In September 2014, NASA announced the choice of Boeing and SpaceX to transfer U. S. teams to and from the space station aboard their CST-100 Starliner and Crew Dragon spacecraft, respectively. For launch operations, Blue Origin intends to refurbish Space Launch Complex 36 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, a no-longer-needed Atlas II launch pad. The first stage of the rocket that will introduce Boeing's CST-100 Starliner spacecraft to the International Space Station on the firm's uncrewed Orbital Flight Test has gotten here in Cape Canaveral, Florida, completing distribution of all equipment for the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. The Atlas V initial stage booster rolled off of the Mariner cargo vessel on Dec. 7 at the Cape Canaveral jetty for the short drive to the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center for receiving inspections and checkout. This shipment indicates every one of the hardware that ULA requires to release the first Boeing Starliner has been received at the launch website for final combination. Following Boeing's Orbital Flight Test in March 2019, the Starliner will release on the Atlas V rocket with astronauts aboard for a Crew Flight Test to the spaceport station targeting August 2019.
