Boeing and NASA still don’t know when Starliner will return to Earth

The first manned mission of Boeing’s Starliner capsule has been in orbit for more than a month, and there is still no date set for its return.

Starliner launched on June 5 on Crew Flight Test (CFT), carrying NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams to the International Space Station (ISS) for a planned week-long stay. However, the capsule experienced helium leaks and thruster problems during the journey, and engineers are still investigating what caused them — meaning Starliner has not yet been cleared for departure.
