NASA, Boeing launch Starliner crew capsule for 2nd time in orbital flight test

Global News published this video item, entitled “NASA, Boeing launch Starliner crew capsule for 2nd time in orbital flight test” – below is their description.

Boeing’s Starliner crew capsule, making a repeat test flight in a third attempt to reach the International Space Station, finally caught up with its quarry Friday and after a few fits and starts, successfully docked in a major milestone for the long-delayed spacecraft.

While no astronauts were on board the Starliner, NASA and Boeing took advantage of the test flight to send up about 500 pounds of equipment and supplies along with “Rosie the Rocketeer,” an instrumented mannequin collecting data on the cabin environment real astronauts will experience during operational flights.
