Boeing’s Starliner capsule to land in New Mexico Wednesday

Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft will wrap up its landmark test flight to the International Space Station for NASA this week with a touchdown in New Mexico on Wednesday evening (May 25), if all goes according to plan.

Starliner arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday (May 20), a day after launching on Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2), an uncrewed shakeout mission designed to show that the capsule is ready to start carrying astronauts to and from the station for NASA.
