    I wonder how the CST-100 vrs X-37C groups are getting along. Both are talking about Atlas launch. The streached X-37 with 6-7 passenger crew capacity would seem like the strongest proposal. The X-37B unmaned fleet has put in a year and a half of flight time, is gentler to cargo adn crew, and can automaticly reenter and land at normal airports, adn could use the same life support systems as the CST. Its arguable which ones closer to being a operational maned craft.

    Wonder if Boeing will drop one, or try to market both?.
