CST-100 Starliner Structural Test Article

The first hull of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner Structural Test Article rests in a work stand inside the company's modernized Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility high bay at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The facility will serve as a hub for the company's CST-100 Starliner spacecraft operations, making it an integral element of the Starliner program to take astronauts to and from the International Space Station from American soil.
