A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket launched Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 Starliner spacecraft on its Orbital Flight Test-2 (OFT-2) to the International Space Station at 6:54 p.m. on 19 May 2022 from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Staton. OFT-2 is the second uncrewed flight of the Starliner that will demonstrate the spacecraft’s human transportation capabilities. This test flight is the last major step before the Atlas V and Boeing’s Starliner capsule take American astronauts to the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
