Boeing Discusses Dates For Launch Of The CST-100 Starliner to the International Space Station

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, Boeing (BA) is discussing multiple dates this month for the launch of its space capsule, CST-100 Starliner to the International Space Station. The much-awaited launch was delayed after a glitch in its propulsion system valves was identified during pre-launch checks.

The CST-100 Starliner is equipped to travel and take the crew to ISS and other low-earth orbit destinations. It competes with Elon Musk’s SpaceX to be the first to return NASA astronauts to the space station from U.S. soil in nearly a decade.

“Seven of the 13 valves are now operating as designed, with inspection and remediation of the remaining affected valves to be performed in the days ahead,” Boeing said after it fixed the issues identified.

Boeing said it was working with NASA and United Launch Alliance, its partnership with Lockheed Martin Corp, to confirm launch dates when the spacecraft is ready.
