Neat to see a spacecraft taking form!  :)

What TPS material is used in the CST-100?

Will the service module, if that is what it's called, be attached for the environmental testing? If not, will the testing have a second round with a fully integrated system?

Boeing's Flight Control Team participated in a rehearsal of prelaunch procedures for the company's upcoming Orbital Flight Test in the White Flight Control Room in the Mission Control Center at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Boeing's CST-100 Starliner will fly uncrewed to the International Space Station before NASA will certify the spacecraft to carry astronauts to station.

Inside the Boeing Mission Control Center at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., launch control teams for the CST-100 Starliner rehearse a fully integrated prelaunch simulation of the spacecraft’s upcoming Orbital Flight Test. Boeing Spacecraft Launch Conductor Louis Atchison speaks on console to the Mission Management Team as the countdown in the launch simulation progresses.

I do not believe the SM is at the same readiness.  I do not think they will have a round 2 of environmental testing together.

I am unsure from the captions whether the missions for Starliner are being run from Johnson, or from Kennedy. Or is it split like NASA flights are between launch operations and mission operations in separate locations. Clarity appreciated.
