Live NASA launch Starliner

This will be the third attempt to launch the Starliner. The first was in December 2019 and was a failure, while the second one was canceled last summer. This third attempt will be crucial for Starliner in order for it to compete against SpaceX’s dragon for sending commercial missions to space.

The unmanned capsule CST-100 Starliner will be vaulted by an Atlas V rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Launch Complex 41 as part of the NASA commercial crew program.

The countdown has begun for NASA and Boeing to launch their uncrewed test mission scheduled for Thursday evening from Cape Canaveral. The rocket will be launched into orbit on its way to the International Space Station (ISS).
