Focus on Details Paying Off for CST-100

www.nasa.gov said:

The Boeing Company in Houston is performing ongoing work to advance the design of the CST-100, a capsule and service module, in between meeting major milestones for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. Boeing is one of three companies working with NASA to develop space transportation systems capable of flying astronauts to and from low-Earth orbit and the International Space Station later this decade.

"Now we're seeing real flight-designed parts," said John Mulholland, vice president and general manager of Commercial Program for Boeing. "We're getting ready to move in with tooling to assemble a structural test article. We'll be receiving our first piece of flight-designed hardware later this year. It's getting exciting to watch real hardware coming off the manufacturing line."
