Starliner Is One Day Away From Its Second Orbital Test Flight

Share This Content
All throughout the space industry, a long list of companies are hard at work on different projects. Boeing is no exception with the work towards Starliner’s second orbital test flight. While the first test flight did not go according to plan, Boeing is confident this time around and have made changes accordingly. All of which need to work perfectly in order for the mission to be a success.

Over the past few days, Starliner has been getting prepared for the orbital test flight expected to launch in only a few days. Just yesterday the flight readiness review was completed along with checks of many of the major systems on both the spacecraft and rocket. In addition, United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V is preparing for the mission.

It has been a few years since the first orbital test flight in late 2019. During this test, just over half an hour into the launch, an issue with the Mission Elapsed Time clock occurred. This error caused the spacecraft to burn into an incorrect orbit, preventing a rendezvous with the International Space Station. Here I will go more in-depth into the upcoming launch and recent updates regarding the mission.
