CST-100 Starliner Trainers: Astronauts ‘Fly’ Boeing Spacecraft

    NASA’s commercial crew astronauts Suni Williams and Eric Boe try out a new generation of training simulators at the Boeing facility in St. Louis. The Crew Part-Task Trainers are programmed to run through all phases of a mission to the International Space Station. The trainer suites are touch screen and use cloud computing technology to prepare astronauts and mission controllers. The trainers will be shipped to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston this year so astronauts can use them daily to practice numerous situations from normal operations to unlikely emergencies.
