Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft is open for astronauts at space station for 1st time


Boeing’s first Starliner capsule to the International Space Station is officially open for astronauts living on board the orbiting lab. 

The commercial Starliner spacecraft, which arrived Friday on an uncrewed test flight to the station, was opened by NASA astronaut Robert Hines at 12:04 p.m. EDT (1604 GMT) to begin about five days of tests on the capsule. It’s a major milestone for Boeing and NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which picked Boeing and SpaceX to fly astronauts to the International Space Station in 2014.
