This 20 December 2019 video from the USA is called NASA’s Bridenstine speaks after Boeing’s Starliner flies into wrong orbit.
And now, their spacecraft.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Launch failed, Boeing space capsule returns to Earth
The Boeing space capsule on its way to the International Space Station (ISS) is not going to reach its goal and will come back to Earth on Sunday. The spacecraft lost its course after the launch, Boeing reports.
The CST-100 Starliner was launched in Florida in the early afternoon. It was a test flight without astronauts on board.
United States astronauts were lucky that they were not on board, preventing them from dying like Boeing aircraft passengers.
The Starliner is in the wrong orbit around the earth.
The intention was that the Starliner, who in the future will have to bring astronauts to the ISS, would arrive at the space station tomorrow. So that is not going on now. The capsule is expected back on Sunday in the US state of New Mexico. …
The Boeing CST-100 Starliner was on top of an Atlas 5 rocket. It must compete with the SpaceX Crew Dragon.
Boeing and SpaceX signed billion dollar contracts in 2014 with space agency NASA.
Because politicians like Donald Trump want to militarise and privatise space. Because they prefer right-wing ideological Ayn Rand novels to spacecraft engineering books. Because the Trump administration is against ISS and other space science cooperation with Russia or other countries.
