On Friday, NASA announced that Ferguson will command what could be the first launch of astronauts from US soil since the shuttle program's swan song seven years ago.
Both capsules will fly to the International Space Station on their first crewed test flights, blazing a trail for future crews to ride to and from the orbiting research complex on operational crew rotation missions, ending NASA's sole reliance on Russian Soyuz spacecraft for the job. "Today's announcement advances our great American vision and strengthens the nation's leadership in space".
Astronauts are expected to make their first flight aboard Boeing's CST-100 Starliner in mid-2019, following a test flight without a crew in late 2018 or early 2019. Boeing's Ferguson was pilot on STS-116 on board Space Shuttle Atlantis as well as commander of STS-126 on Space Shuttle Endeavour and the final flight of the space shuttle program, STS-135 on board Atlantis.

Ferguson is a former NASA astronaut and space shuttle commander who now works on Boeing's Starliner program. It will ride atop a Falcon-9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center. Just as in the past, all human launches will originate here on the space coast. Boeing said earlier this week it would carry out a test flight of the Starliner vehicle without humans later this year or in early 2019, after it suffered an issue with the capsule's launch abort system during a test in New Mexico in June, according to SpaceNews.
