Boeing has outfitted NASA‘s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, with new simulation training equipment to support the crew of the company-built CST-100 Starliner spacecraft.
The company’s Crew Part-Task Trainers are designed to simulate various Starliner mission aspects, NASA said in a blog post published Wednesday.
JSC engineers will manage the simulations as astronauts rehearse Starliner missions, the space agency added.
Suni Williams and Bob Behnken are among the four astronauts selected to undergo mission training as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program with Boeing and SpaceX.
The program aims to fly astronauts to the International Space Station, NASA said.
