I thought cS members would enjoy a few photos from the NASA Langley Research Center Centennial Open House Saturday, October 21, 2017.

I was lucky enough a few years ago to be part of a private tour of the wind tunnels, but didn't have a chance to see the Landing and Impact Research Facility. This was the perfect opportunity to see the drop test facility up close, and there was a Boeing CST-100 Starliner being tested.

The CST-100 will touch down on land, using air bags, were as the Orion and SpaceX spacecraft will water land like Apollo.
