The Boeing Co Starliner spacecraft that failed to hit the right orbit to reach the International Space Station is “healthy,” in a stable orbit and expected to land in New Mexico on Sunday morning, NASA said on Saturday.
The Boeing CST-100 Starliner astronaut capsule was successfully launched from Florida on Friday, but an automated timer error prevented the spacecraft from attaining the correct orbit for it to rendezvous and dock with the space station.
NASA and Boeing officials said on a Saturday conference call they are still investigating the causes of the failure – and that the spacecraft’s challenges were not over.
Friday, Boeing closed the session at 380, or -5.50/share.
Have a terrific weekend
