Boeing set to retry test flight in bid to take on SpaceX

Soumis
 
Boeing is slated to launch its long-anticipated Starliner spacecraft — which is built to carry NASA astronauts — on an uncrewed test flight to the International Space Station, a follow-up to the company's botched first attempt 18 months ago, tomorrow. It will be a decisive moment for Boeing and NASA, as the traditional aerospace giant seeks to join SpaceX in ferrying people to the station. (www.cnn.com) Plus d'info...

Take on SpaceX? Boeing? That's beyond laughable. Boeing is a clown show. Meanwhile SpaceX is about to launch a new fully reusable rocket with up to 100 tons of payload capacity. One hundred tons. This "race" has been over for quite a few years now.

Pratt and Whitney pushes propellers. That's all I know.

Go, babe!

And...

It didn't happen... Something about a valve. There is no apparently date for them to try again. After the Russian 'mishap', I wouldn't be so gung-ho to have another 'new item' trying to hook up to the ISS.

Good luck Boeing! You need this to go off with no hiccups...
