        Engineer Profile: Tony Castilleja

        Tony Castilleja, a mechanical engineer at The Boeing Company, describes the revolutionary design of the CST-100 Starliner Crew Space Transportation system, in this video from WGBH and The Documentary Group. Castilleja was inspired to become an engineer and design the next-generation spacecraft by watching the Space Shuttle launch as a 12-year-old boy. Today, Castilleja works with mentor engineers who have experience on heritage space programs, including the Shuttle program. The CST-100 Starliner is autonomous, meaning it is designed to launch, dock, and return to Earth without any interaction of a human with the vehicle, and features wireless Internet and tablets, as well as a weldless design and LED “Sky Lighting” technology. This resource is part of the Aerospace Engineering collection.
