Starliner Stranded: Boeing’s Spacecraft Faces New Setbacks


Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft, which finally reached the International Space Station (ISS) after years of delays and technical difficulties, is now facing new challenges. The spacecraft’s return to Earth is now uncertain. Multiple helium leaks and thrust issues are continuing, leaving the Starliner stranded.

 The United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V with astronauts aboard Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner lifted off on June 5, 2024, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. 

The launch of NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams, was celebrated as a significant milestone. But problems continue to plague the mission.
