Space taxi achieves critical milestone

Space taxi achieves milestone and what this could mean for commercial space travel

Boeing hopes that the CST-100 will also be a leader in commercial space flight.

“We are moving into a truly commercial space market and we have to consider our potential customers – beyond Nasa – and what they need in a future commercial spacecraft interior,”
says Chris Ferguson, Boeing director of Crew and Mission Operations for CCiCap.

The age of commercial space flight began in 2012 when SpaceX’s Dragon capsule docked at the ISS. However, its origins began in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan signed the
Commercial Space Launch Act, which allowed private companies to work with NASA on space technology. In 1990, the Launch Services Purchase Act, actually ordered NASA to use
commercial companies for launch technology.
