Boeing Starliner OFT Docking - Failed

International Space Station International Space Station Atlas V N22 | CST-100 Starliner Orbital Flight Test

The first Boeing CST-100 Starliner will NOT dock with the International Space Station on its first uncrewed test flight.

The capsule had an anomaly when performing the orbit insertion burn, causing it to be unable to reach the ISS with enough fuel.

Dec. 20, 2019, 11:36 a.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission:

This is the first test flight of Starliner spacecraft to the International Space Station. Although Atlas V and Centaur upper stage successfully put Starliner into planned trajectory, the spacecraft was unable to perform a nominal orbital insertion. Preliminary analysis indicate that Mission Elapsed Time (MET) system error led to Starliner burning more fuel than expected. Spacecraft is healthy and in stable orbit, but won't be able to reach and dock with ISS. Landing at White Sands Facility is planned on Dec 22.
