Hey Space Placers!

Hope the holidays are treating you well.

Boeing's CST-100 Starliner returned safely to Earth last Sunday in a land-based touchdown.

An environmental enclosure is put into position over the Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft shortly after it landed in White Sands, New Mexico, on Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019. The capsule was named "Calypso" by NASA astronaut Suni Williams, who will command its first re-flight.

  • Although the spacecraft suffered an anomaly that kept it from achieving the proper orbit to dock with the International Space Station - see previous blog - the successful touchdown was a BIG step forward.
