Starliner Return Delayed Again

Boeing Starliner's departure from the International Space Station delayed again to allow more time to test ongoing issues with the spacecraft.

Last week, NASA was targeting the undocking on Tuesday (June 18) but has now pushed the departure to no earlier than Saturday (June 22).

In addition to helium leaks, teams are working on issues with thrusters which delayed the Starliner’s docking with the ISS. They plan to complete a testfire of some of the thrusters while the Starliner is still docked.

NASA and Boeing leadership will provide more information about the astronauts' return Tuesday (June 18).
