ULA scrubbed Boeing Starliner crewed flight test



ULA has scrubbed the launch of the Boeing Starliner Crewed Flight Test launch on the Atlas V rocket, which was slated to liftoff today at 10:34 p.m. ET.

This mission aims to test the capability of Boeing’s first spacecraft named “Starliner” to launch, dock, and return human passengers to the International Space Station.


During this flight test, the spacecraft will host two NASA astronauts Suni Williams and Bunch Wilmore. Both of these have been prepared and entered the spacecraft.

However, ULA Launch Director Tom Heter III has decided not to launch the mission tonight. Therefore, the launch team is getting both astronauts out of the spacecraft. Meanwhile, ULA is yet to share new dates for the flight.
