Boeing’s Next-Generation Starliner Vehicle Passes Major Safety Test | Scientific American

Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner passed the pad abort safety test on Monday in New Mexico. The exercise confirmed the Starliners ability to carry astronauts to safety if an issue is discovered with the rocket during launch. In the test, the capsule had to rapidly pick up speed starting from a full stop in order to move to safety within a reasonable time. The three astronauts who will fly to the International Space Station on Starliner attended and commented that “big milestones like the test today are just showing that we’re getting a lot closer.”
