Touchdown! Boeing’s Starliner returns to Earth from space station

Boeing’s new astronaut taxi has landed safely back on Earth, wrapping up its long-anticipated and crucial demonstration mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

The Starliner capsule landed at White Sands Space Harbor, part of the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range (WSRM) in New Mexico, today (May 25) at 6:49 p.m. EDT (2249 GMT). The touchdown brought Boeing’s uncrewed Orbital Test Flight 2 (OFT-2) to a successful end.
