Boeing and NASA announce preview, Starliner capsule test flight on June 5.


Boeing's Starliner, which had previously delayed its maiden flight due to a malfunction, has finally announced a new test flight date on Sunday.

Boeing and NASA said on Sunday that their team is preparing to launch the new Starliner capsule on June 5 after the first test launch attempt on Saturday was cancelled.

The Starliner capsule was originally scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, but ground system computers triggered an automatic abort command, terminating the launch sequence.

NASA stated that its team worked overnight to evaluate the ground support equipment at the launch pad and discovered a problem with the ground power supply in a chassis that provides power to some computers controlling various system functions.

NASA noted that the chassis containing the faulty ground power unit has been removed and replaced with a backup chassis after a visual inspection.

The first manned flight of the CST-200 Starliner will send two astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS), marking an important milestone for Boeing in securing more business with NASA, a market currently dominated by Elon Musk's SpaceX.

After launch, the Starliner is expected to reach the space station following about 24 hours of flight and will dock with the orbital research station situated approximately 250 miles (402 kilometers) above Earth.
