NASA Astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams will not be returning to Earth this week, as NASA reported the team needs more time to review propulsion system data. As of now, the earliest return for the two astronauts is next Tuesday, July 2, 2024. After years of delays, the Boeing Starliner successfully... Read more...
NASA astronauts Suni Williams and Butch Wilmore recently gave a tour of Boeings Starliner while docked at the International Space Station (ISS). Starliner successfully launched for the first time with crew onboard last week, en route to the ISS following two prior delays. Wilmore and Williams arrived... Read more...
Following two aborted launch attempts, NASA finally launched Boeings Starliner on an Atlas V rocket this week. Just one day later, SpaceX completed its fourth test launch of its Starship spacecraft. While the two spacecrafts may sound similar, they are actually have different purposes for furthering space... Read more...
Boeings Starliner finally launched atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Florida yesterday, but not without issues.

Things haven't gone well for Boeing and its CST-100 Starliner spacecraft that might one day ferry American astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). Starliner was conducted one of the final key tests before it will be allowed to launch astronauts, and the test failed. This flight was uncrewed... Read more...
With the Space Shuttle out of commission since 2011, the United States has needed to rely on Russia to send astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). However, NASA is looking for more homegrown solutions to puts astronauts into space, and has contracted with both Boeing and SpaceX to develop commercial crew... Read more...
The U.S. has been unable to send astronauts into orbit on its own since the space shuttle fleet was decommissioned 8 years ago. Rather than develop a new government program for putting Americans into space, NASA has been buying seats on Russian rockets. America is going to regain its ability to put men and women into...
