Today NASA announced the Starliner Commercial Crew team. We could not be more excited to open the hatch on this next era of U.S. crewed space launch. Astronauts Chris Ferguson, Nicole Mann, Eric Boe, Suni Williams and Josh Cassada bring incredible star power to the team. This is not the first Boeing aircraft they have flown in. Boe was an F-15 test pilot, Mann an F/A-18 pilot, Cassada commanded P-8 crews and Williams flew V-22s. Ferguson heads up our Starliner program and was a Naval Aviator, TOPGUN and the final commander of the last space shuttle flight. Chris landed Atlantis and he is ready to take American crews back to space in Starliner. #NASA #Starliner #CommercialCrew

This passenger-carrying hypersonic concept could take you anywhere in the world in 1 – 4 hours! With the potential for commercial and military applications, this concept could allow us to fly farther and faster in as little as 20 years.
