This uncrewed, opening act for the CST-100 Starliner will serve to demonstrate the spacecraft's human transportation capabilities in advance of certification to fly humans to space.
Before certification can be achieved, this demonstration of Starliner's abort systems is critical to ensure crew safety.
Starliner's first flight with crew will fully demonstrate Boeing's ability to fly humans safely to and from the International Space Station.
Starliner-1 will be Boeing's first operational mission to the space station. Regular crewed flights to station are the realization of the final goal of the Commercial Crew Program: safe, reliable and cost-effective transportation of astronauts to low-Earth orbit on commercial spacecraft.
