Boeing on Track for Spring 2017 Launch of CST-100 Starliner Capsule

Boeing is making impressive strides on a series of tests and technical verifications for their CST-100 Starliner spacecraft. With Boeing and NASA now working through a Test and Verification Control Board meeting this month and Atlas V launch pad infrastructure build progressing on schedule, Boeing remains on track to launch their commercial crew spacecraft on its maiden voyage in spring 2017.

The plot twist is the availability of RD-180 engines for the Atlas V rocket it is supposed to be flying on.
