Image of the Day: Space travel by Boeing

•, Evan Ackerman
Boeing's CST-100 space capsule is designed to handle up to seven astronauts (and their luggage), and it features Boeing LED "Sky Lighting" (we're not sure what that is but it sounds all kinds of cool and futurey), along with tablet technology for crew interfaces, because we all should be completely fine with steering a spaceship using an iPad.
Anyway, once the capsule does its space thing and comes back to Earth, it'll land using parachutes, airbags, and nice squishy seats to protect the returning astronauts. Each capsule can be refurbished and reused up to ten times, which ought to help reduce the per-ticket cost for those of us who may be restricted to flying economy class.
