NASA’s Boeing Crew Flight Test Starliner tour

Live from the International Space Station. Watch a tour of the Boeing Starliner with NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams, the first crew to fly on the spacecraft.

Wilmore and Williams arrived at the station aboard Starliner on Thursday, June 6.  This one day after the spacecraft was launched on a ULA (United Launch Alliance) Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

As part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, the Boeing Crew Flight Test will help validate the transportation system.  Also the launch pad, rocket, spacecraft, in-orbit operations capabilities, and return to Earth with astronauts aboard.  The agency prepares to certify Starliner for rotational missions to the space station.

Boeing’s Starliner launched after the rocket’s maiden crewed voyage was scrubbed minutes before takeoff Saturday.  The Boeing lifted-off Wednesday 5 June.

Boeing’s launch is a giant leap towards Nasa deeming the spacecraft ready for regular missions
