The Dual Engine Centaur for the first flight of the The Boeing Company CST-100 Starliner is in the final stage of production and checkout and will be shipping to the Cape soon! For Starliner missions, we will fly two RL10A-4-2 engines on the #AtlasVís Centaur upper stage.
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Mike Pence will visit Cape Canaveral next month for a big space update

Quote
Pence, who chairs the National Space Council, will confirm a new launch date for the first private crew missions and announce which crew capsules each of the four selected astronauts will ride in to the International Space Station.

We will get an update by VP Pence on commercial crew on August 3rd. See the link above.

That picture has both Centaurs for their 2 flight tests (though the RL-10s are only integrated in one of them yet).  The OFT's Centaur is on the right and the CFT's is on the left.
