The competition heats up: Boeing today unveiled “Starliner” as the new name for its CST-100 manned capsule.
This intensifies the competition because the new name is something the public can grab and identify. As long as Boeing was using the boring acronym they were holding back to stay in the boring do-nothing pork-laden government-funded NASA environment. Grabbing the public means they want the public to buy this product.
