TYSONS CORNER, VA, November 27, 2019 — The test dummy for Boeing‘s (NYSE: BA) initial orbital flight test of the Starliner space taxi will be called “Rosie the Astronaut” in honor of a World War II icon, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.

Florida Today reported Thursday the anthropometric model, which is wearing a Boeing Blue spacesuit and WWII character Rosie the Riveter’s classic red bandana, will ride aboard the crew capsule with hundreds of data-gathering sensors.

“Rosie is a symbol of not only the women who are blazing a trail in human spaceflight history, but also of everyone who has shown grit and determination while working tirelessly to ensure the Starliner can transport astronauts safely to and from the International Space Station,” said Leanne Caret, president of Boeing’s defense, space and security business and a 2019 Wash100 winner.
