Boeing’s next Starliner test launch for NASA slips to 2022

Boeing’s Starliner astronaut taxi won’t get off the ground this year after all.

Starliner was originally supposed to launch Aug. 3 on Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2), a critical uncrewed trial mission to the International Space Station for NASA. But prelaunch tests revealed 13 stuck valves in Starliner’s service module, pushing the liftoff back — all the way into next year, it now appears.
