Boeing’s Starliner To Make Crucial OFT-2 Test Flight To Space Station This Week At Last

Boeing’s Starliner capsule is ready to launch on the uncrewed Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2) mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

Following a readiness review for the May 11 flight, NASA and Boeing are targeting an instant launch window of May 19 at 6:54 p.m. EDT (22:54 GMT) for liftoff of starliner on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. This will be Starliner’s second attempt to rendezvous and dock with the ISS, and a critical step in NASA’s certification of Boeing spacecraft for human passengers.
