Boeing may attempt another uncrewed orbital test of its Starliner spacecraft

NASA picked two companies to build new spacecraft to carry astronauts to the space station. One, SpaceX, has already transported astronauts to orbit twice. Boeing, the second company, experienced a series of problems and narrowly avoided a catastrophic conclusion to its first uncrewed test flight to orbit at the end of 2019. Boeing must conduct this second uncrewed orbital trip before attempting to fly astronauts to space. Read about some of the earlier problems with Starliner here: <a href=""></a>
