Boeing’s Starliner: Two More Opportunities This Week for Maiden Crewed Flight

Eve Harrison

03 June Update: NASA says the first crewed mission re-launch is planned for 10:52 a.m. ET on Wednesday, June 5.

Space Mission Test Postponed Again

NASA, Boeing, and ULA made the difficult decision to delay the Starliner mission due to issues with the ground computer system. The problem, which led to the last-minute cancellation of the launch, was quickly identified as an automatic hold issued by the launch sequencer. This unexpected issue led to a significant delay for the mission.

What’s Happening & Why This Matters

The crewed Starliner mission was postponed again after the last launch attempt was scrapped due to a ground computer system problem. Although they discussed the possibility of launching today, they’ve decided to wait until the next opportunities.

NASA clarified that the decision to forego [the planned] launch was to assess an equipment issue on the ground. No target time for liftoff on June 5 has been announced, and if Starliner doesn’t fly by June 6, at least 10 more days will be needed to swap out the rocket’s batteries.

TF Summary: What’s Next

Despite significant delays, NASA, Boeing, and ULA are working to resolve the ground equipment issue and targeting the next launch opportunities on June 5 or 6.

Stay tuned to NASA and/or Boeing the latest updates on this developing space mission.
