Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Astronauts Tour Future White Room, Crew Access Tower

The Crew Access Arm and White Room that astronauts will use in 2017 to board Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner saw some of their first visitors Dec. 10 during a tour of the structures by the first four astronauts selected to train for Commercial Crew Program flight tests. Destined for attachment to the Crew Access Tower at Space Launch Complex 41, known as SLC-41, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, both the arm and White Room provide vital support for America’s coming return to human space launches from the United States.
