„Liftoff!”: After A Series Of Delays, Crewed Boeing Starliner Finally Launches, Inbound To ISS 

„Liftoff!”: After A Series Of Delays, Crewed Boeing Starliner Finally Launches, Inbound To ISS 

Update (1100ET):

The Boeing CST-100 Starliner finally lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and is en route to the International Space Station.

The third time may be the charm.

No one knows for sure, as the Boeing CST-100 Starliner launch was first scrubbed last month due to a leak, and the most recent attempt on Saturday was canceled because of a computer glitch.

  • May 27: Boeing’s Starliner Crewed ISS Mission Will Still Launch Despite Helium Leak
  • June 1: Countdown To Boeing’s Starliner Spacecraft Launch „Has Been Stopped”

Let’s hope this time around, the Starliner, seven years behind schedule and more than a billion-dollar cost overrun, will experience no more technical mishaps on its long-delayed space taxi flight with the vehicle’s first crewed mission from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, atop an Atlas V rocket from the Boeing-Lockheed Martin joint venture United Launch Alliance, to the International Space Station. 

Two veteran astronauts – Sunita „Suni” Williams and Barry „Butch” Wilmore – will be inside the Starliner. Launch time from Kennedy Space Center is expected around 10:52 ET. 

Meanwhile, all eyes are on Thursday’s SpaceX’s Starship Flight 4 test mission.
