Boeing 1st crewed flight for NASA delayed to February 2023

Boeing’s first astronaut mission for NASA won’t lift off this year after all.

The company had been aiming to launch Crew Flight Test (CFT), the first-ever crewed mission of its Starliner capsule, toward the International Space Station (ISS) sometime in December. But technicians need more time to address a few issues identified on Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2), an uncrewed jaunt to the ISS that Starliner made in May, NASA and Boeing representatives announced today (Aug. 25).
