The spaceship Boeing Starliner has reached the International Space Station

The Boeing Starliner probe reached the orbit with pride. The manned spacecraft was successfully launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The probe, which was launched yesterday, reached the space station in 27 hours and successfully rendezvoused with the station. NASA astronauts Sunita Williams and Butch Wilmore are the passengers on the mission.

This is 58-year-old Sunita Williams’ third space flight. The launch, which was postponed twice due to technical problems, is seeing success in its third attempt. The launch was at 8.22 last night. Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft has again caused concern due to a helium leak during its journey to the International Space Station. In addition to the one leak that was identified before the launch and deemed not to be a safety issue, two more leaks occurred.

NASA stated that the issue was resolved for the time being by locking the two helium valves. Launches have been postponed several times in the past due to technical problems following the discovery of helium leaks. Then the launch took place last night.
