MISSION

Under the Commercial Crew Program, NASA and industry partners prepare for the next generation of American spacecraft to launch astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) from here, the Space Coast of Florida.

The Boeing CST-100 Starliner Orbital Flight Test (OFT) will launch the spacecraft aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station SLC-41 to the ISS. This is the second launch of Boeing’s Starliner, a spacecraft that will soon transport astronauts to the International Space Station. No astronauts will be on board for this demonstration mission, but this launch is a necessary step prior to the final flight test with astronauts Butch Wilmore, Mike Fincke and Nicole Mann.
