NASA, Boeing delay Starliner astronaut landing to June 26 amid thruster issues


The return to Earth of Boeing’s Starliner capsule will be delayed a few more days due to thruster troubleshooting and a scheduled spacewalk.

NASA announced today (June 18) that Starliner will conclude its first human mission to the International Space Station (ISS) no earlier than June 26, nearly three weeks after it launched. Landing that day is scheduled to occur at White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico at 4:51 a.m. EDT (0851 GMT). We’ll carry it live here at Space.com, via NASA Television.
