Boeing's New Spaceship

Boeings new spacecraft, the Crew Space Transportation-100, flies a typical mission in this silent animated sequence: Launch in Florida, rendezvous and docking at the International Space Station, and return to Earth with a landing in White Sands, New Mexico using parachutes and airbags. Depending on NASA funding, Boeing hopes to have the CST-100 operational for missions to the ISS or other destinations in low Earth orbit -- in 2015. Video: Boeing (1:56)
