The science of Boeing’s OFT-2 Starliner mission to space station

Boeing’s Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2) mission to the International Space Station is poised to launch at 6:54 pm EDT (2254 GMT) on Thursday (May 19) from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

This second uncrewed test mission of the company’s Starliner capsule serves as a critical step in NASA’s certification of the spacecraft for human spaceflight, following the incomplete original OFT mission in December 2019 and valve problems that delayed OFT-2’s liftoff from summer 2021 until now.
