Description: The Crew Space Transportation -100 (CST-100) is a spacecraft being designed by Boeing to support and transport a crew of seven to the International Space Station (ISS) and the Bigelow Aerospace Orbital Space Complex. The spacecraft will be bigger than Apollo but smaller than Orion, and be able to launch on a variety of different rockets, including Atlas, Delta and Falcon. It will use a simple systems architecture and existing, proven components. The "100" in CST-100 refers to the 100 kilometers from the ground to low Earth orbit. CST-100 is being developed under a $18 million Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) Space Act Agreement with NASA. Boeing released the first artist's renderings during the Farnborough Airshow in July 2010. On September 16, 2014, NASA awarded a $4.2 billion contract to Boeing for the CST-100 development as the United States' next passenger spacecraft.
