CST-100 Starliner Recovery Practice
During a June 6, 2018 rehearsal, Boeing, NASA and U.S. Army teams practice recovery of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft at the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The simulation allowed engineers, technicians and spaceflight specialists to perfecting tight timelines, practicing operations that will conclude each Starliner mission.
Starliner Reliability Tests
In a series of reliability tests for the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft, Boeing released a dart-shaped test vehicle from a C-17 aircraft over Yuma, Arizona. The efforts are testing the Starliner's parachute system from different altitudes, speeds and with different aerodynamic loads and weight demands.
Returning to Earth
In the first of several reliability tests, a dart-shaped test vehicle descends to Earth. The tests will create more data for the CST-100 Starliner's flight drogue and main parachute system.
