La capsula CTS-100 della Boeing supera l’Integrated System Review

The Boeing Company's mock-up CST-100 spacecraft was put through water landing development tests Oct. 1-5, 2012, at Bigelow Aerospace's headquarters outside of Las Vegas. Engineers with Bigelow have dropped the capsule-shaped spacecraft into an outdoor pool from a crane more than four times to assess whether the airbags will stabilize the capsule during landings as planned. The tests are part of Boeing's ongoing work supporting its funded Space Act Agreement (SAA) with NASA's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) during the agency's Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) development phase.

Che dire Albyz, grazie per i nuovi disegni e per i documenti; più va avanti il progetto di questa capsula e più diventa interessante! Speriamo di vederla volare presto.
