coondoggie writes “Boeing today released the first public glimpse of the commercial spacecraft it is working on under an $18 million contract with NASA. Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 can hold seven crew and will be bigger than Apollo but smaller than NASA’s Orion, and be able to launch on a variety of different rockets, including Atlas, Delta and Falcon.The company envisions the spacecraft supporting the International Space Station and future Bigelow Aerospace Orbital Space Complex systems. Bigelow is building what it calls ‘expandable habitats,’ that which are inflatable spacecraft would act as large, less costly space stations.”
