Boeing launches astronauts into space for the first time after years of delays

Cape Canaveral, Florida — Boeing launched astronauts into space for the first time on Wednesday, joining SpaceX as the second transportation service for the POT.

Two NASA test pilots took off on the Boeing Starliner capsule heading to International Space Stationthe first to use this new aircraft.

It is expected that the journey undertaken by Butch Willmore and Suni Williams take 25 hours and conclude on Thursday. The astronauts will spend just over a week in the orbiting laboratory before returning to the Starliner for land on June 14 in a remote desert location in the western United States.

Delayed several years due to spacecraft failures, the Starliner crew debut comes as the company faces unrelated safety issues in its aircraft division.
