Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that the Boeing Starliner had to abort its mission to dock with the International Space Station. Discuss here if you think the craft is safe for human flight, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Seems like the issue of the clock being wrong is reminiscent of the mirror grinding on the space telescope. The simple things get overlooked. Of course, the clock issue could be just the cover story. At any rate, it doesn't appear to be ready for prime time just yet.

From what I read, if a crew had been aboard, they would have been able to override the auto-pilot, corrected for the clock error, & docked with the space station. Other than not docking, the rest of the flight testing & the landing were declared successful.

Maybe someday we'll develop a space ship the can take-off & land on its own without all the waste & debris left behind to eventually burn up in the atmosphere. I'm sure none of this stuff has any effect on our climate, right?
