Engineers Test CST-100 Water Recovery Techniques

The Boeing Company evaluated tools, equipment and procedures it could use if the CST-100 spacecraft is required to make a water landing. The testing included a full-scale mockup of the spacecraft floating in a specialized facility operated by Bigelow Aerospace near Las Vegas. The CST-100 is one of three spacecraft under development in partnership with NASA's Commercial Crew Program. The others are the SpaceX Dragon and Sierra Nevada Corporation Dream Chaser.
