Boeing Grand Opening of Revamped Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility.

Boeing held a grand opening ceremony for the revamped Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility (C3PF), one of NASA's former shuttle hangars, Friday, Sept. 4, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Hardware for Boeing's Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 Starliner spacecraft is being processed in the facility as part of the company's contract with NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

The pressure vessel was used for early development and testing of the spacecraft and helped inform the company's design. The structural test article upper and lower domes will be mated and used to test the company's design prior to flight tests to the International Space Station in 2017.
