Boeing, NASA say Starliner astronaut launch will move forward despite spacecraft helium leak

That’s correct. NASA and Boeing have decided to proceed with their plans to launch the Starliner spacecraft, despite a reported helium leak. They believe the amount of helium present in the system is sufficient for the flight to be conducted safely.

In this uncrewed test flight, the spacecraft will return to Earth after a short period in space. This final test flight aims to validate Starliner’s capabilities, performance, and readiness to transport crew to the International Space Station (ISS).


If everything goes as planned, it may pave the way for the spacecraft’s first crewed test flight. This determination underscores the partnership’s confidence in the mission’s success and commitment to prioritizing astronaut safety.
