NASA and Boeing again canceled the launch of the Starliner spacecraft

The reason for the cancellation was a technical problem in the power plant.

The American space agency NASA and the aerospace company Boeing canceled the launch of the Starliner spacecraft for the second time in a week.

In a press release, Boeing said that the launch of the capsule for the Starliner crew using the Atlas V launch vehicle of the United Launch Alliance consortium was canceled after a pre-launch check showed that the valve in the power plant is “in an unforeseen position.”

The launch was scheduled for 13:20 on Tuesday.

It was assumed that the capsule, designed for seven crew members and passengers, would be launched in unmanned mode to the International Space Station.
