Boeing’s crew flight test aboard its Starliner spacecraft, which is targeted to launch in mid-2019, will have Eric Boe, Chris Ferguson and Nicole Mann on board. Boeing’s first post-certification mission will have Josh Cassada and Suni Williams aboard.
The missions are designed to test the vehicles that the companies are designing to take NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The missions will be the first time since 2011 that American astronauts will launch on American rockets from American soil.
