Boeing’s Starliner finally docked with the ISS.
Well, all the hard work pays off in the end! I am happy for them!
Notably, this success is not only vital to Boeing and NASA but also could be a game-changer.
It will likely change the plan to send humans to the ISS of the US in particular and of the whole world in general.
How specifically?
Is this flight affect SpaceX?
How does Elon Musk react?
All this and more in today's episode of Great SpaceX!

Orbital Flight Test (OFT-2) is an uncrewed mission to the ISS designed to demonstrate Starliner's readiness to carry astronauts for NASA.
Boeing, NASA, and ULA aimed to launch OFT-2 last summer. But routine preflight checks back then revealed more than a dozen malfunctioning oxidizer valves in Starliner's propulsion system, a problem that took about eight months to identify and mitigate.
And, as its name suggests, OFT-2 is a do-over, an attempt to make up for Starliner's failure to reach the space station during its first orbital flight test in December 2019. The original OFT ended prematurely after Starliner suffered a series of software glitches and got stranded in the wrong orbit for an ISS meetup.
Such setbacks have delayed the certification of Starliner considerably compared to that of SpaceX's Dragon capsule, which has already carried astronauts on four operational missions to the ISS for NASA.
For now, after plenty of drama, Boeing's Starliner spacecraft finally dock with the ISS.
Starliner lifted off on May 19 atop a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket. The duo rose off a pad at Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force Station as planned at 6:54 p.m. EDT, kicking off the crucial OFT-2.
Starliner separated from the Atlas V's upper stage right on schedule just under 15 minutes after launch, while the pair were over the North Atlantic Ocean. Then, 16 minutes later, the capsule aced its 45-second-long orbital insertion burn.
As Boeing's Josh Barrett said during NASA TV's webcast of this launch, "We have a good orbital insertion burn."
Starliner went to rendezvous with the space station on Friday evening.
Finally, they did it!
Good for them!
