    Boeing to re-fly uncrewed demo mission of their human spacecraft after first try met with errors

    Boeing has confirmed what many suspected following the partial failure of their original Starliner capsule Orbital Flight Test (OFT) – the company will re-fly the mission, once again seeking to test and demonstrate the Starliner's launch, flight, Space Station docking and landing capabilities prior to flying a version of the mission with actual astronauts on board. In a statement, Boeing said that it "has chosen" to re-fly the mission, in order to "demonstrate the quality of the Starliner system." The aim will be to do all the test objectives that were on the table the first time around, the statement continues, and this second flight will be flown "at no cost to the taxpayer," which presumably means Boeing is eating the cost of the unplanned second attempt.
