Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Commercial Crew Access Tower Rising | YouTube

A crane places the first tier on a concrete foundation at Space Launch Complex-41 to form the Crew Access Tower under construction by Boeing and United Launch Alliance. The steel structure is being built in seven pieces that will be stacked atop each other to form the tower complete with elevator, communications and power infrastructure, and an escape system. The tower, standing about 200 feet tall, will provide astronauts and ground support teams access to Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft under development in partnership with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
