BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – NASA and Boeing are targeting August/September for the launch of Starliner’s uncrewed Orbital Flight Test-2 (OFT-2) mission to the International Space Station and will evaluate options if an earlier launch opportunity becomes available.
The current schedule is supported by a space station docking opportunity and the availability of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and Eastern Range.
Boeing will be mission-ready in May should another launch opportunity arise.
The Starliner team has completed all work on the OFT-2 vehicle except for activities to be conducted closer to launch, such as loading cargo and fueling the spacecraft.
The team also has submitted all verification and validation paperwork to NASA and is completing all Independent Review Team recommended actions including those that were not mandatory ahead of OFT-2.
