Boeing set for rerun of Starliner space capsule test – BBC News

The American Boeing company is about to run another demonstration mission of its new astronaut capsule.

The CST-100 Starliner is set to launch from Florida to showcase how it can ferry crews to and from the International Space Station (ISS).

It will be the second test flight, and conducted with no people aboard.

The previous demonstration, in 2019, encountered software problems that very nearly resulted in the loss of the capsule.

Two years of redesign and upgrades give Boeing another chance to showcase its astronaut vehicle.
