SpaceX Crew Dragon Relocation for Boeing’s Key Starliner TestThe Boeing spacecraft has already faced a couple of delays, leading to months, as there has been no docking port available for it due to the launch of SpaceX. On February 18, the Boeing Starliner was supposedly rescheduled to April, which eventually moved to the end of July. As such, the SpaceX Crew-2 Dragon has to make way for the upcoming do-ever of another competing spacecraft.
The Starliner flight will be launching on July 30 at the Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida, Observer reported.
NASA will be covering the docking activities, launch, and pre-launch of the Starliner. It will be broadcasted live on the website of the space agency, which started on July 19.
The actual liftoff of the spacecraft is scheduled at exactly 2:53 pm on July 30.
