Boeing’s Starliner Spacecraft lands safely in New Mexico after aborted docking

The Boeing Co Starliner spacecraft has landed on the Earth’s surface after Friday’s failed docking to the International Space Station (ISS).

The day before, NASA said that the Starliner’s orbit is “stable” and the American had engineers evaluated the condition of the capsule as “healthy”.

The CST-100 Starliner was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida atop an Atlas V carrier rocket for its first unmanned test flight.

The spacecraft, however, failed to dock with the International Space Station (ISS) due to the failure of an automated timer.
