Every aspect of Commercial Crew spacecraft is being tested for the journey to and from the International Space Station. Engineers working with Boeing’s CST-100 #Starliner spacecraft recently lab tested their seat design focusing on how the spacecraft seats protect the head, neck and spine of the astronauts for the 240-mile descent from space.

The CubeSats that make up NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative, the ELaNa 17 mission, have begun their research in earnest. All three have been dispatched in orbit from the NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer on the International Space Station. Orbiting on their own on separate paths, the individual spacecraft will relay data to researchers on Earth as they conduct their flights. The satellites flew to the...
