Starliner lands in New Mexico
Posted: Sun, May 29, 2022, 8:04 AM ET (1204 GMT)
Starliner landing on OFT-2 mission (NASA/Bill Ingalls) Boeing's CST-100 Starliner landed in New Mexico Wednesday, concluding the OFT-2 uncrewed test flight. The spacecraft landed at White Sands Space Harbor at 6:49 pm EDT (2249 GMT), more than four hours after undocking from the International Space Station. NASA and Boeing officials said after landing that the six-day OFT-2 mission was successful. Despite some technical problems, such as malfunctioning thrusters, they saw no "showstoppers" that would prevent them from moving next to a crewed test flight. However, they said it would be up to several months before they're ready to formally schedule that mission.
