Watch The Splashdown Test Of Boeing's Astronaut Capsule | Popular Science
- Thereâ€™s no point in sending people to space if they canâ€™t survive the landing. While the early days of space testing are littered with the ghosts of animals who entered orbit before humans, modern testing makes sure the capsule can survive the trip back to Earth before putting anything alive inside. Last week, at NASAâ€™s Langley Research Center, Boeing tested its Starliner capsule in a splashdown landing.
