On June 5, NASA astronauts Barry “Butch” Wilmore and Sunita Williams launched aboard Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft from Cape Canaveral. This mission is a crucial test flight to validate Starliner as NASA’s second crew transport to the ISS and a future commercial spaceflight vehicle. 

Despite past issues and a last-minute helium leak, the launch was successful. Starliner will dock at the ISS and undergo tests during its week-long mission. Boeing aims to complete Starliner certification for future NASA missions.

“Today’s successful launch of Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner is a huge step for commercial space travel,” said Myles Corey, founder of Spaero. “Innovations like these will broaden aviation’s horizons and create new opportunities for human exploration.”
