Stuck valves on Boeing’s Starliner keep critical space station test flight on hold

Boeing’s Starliner capsule is still under repair as the company works to figure out what’s going on with its faulty valves.  

Following a multitude of delays, Starliner has no new launch date set for its Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2) mission to the International Space Station as Boeing teams continue to “work around the clock” to fix the valve issues that grounded the craft last week and continue to delay a liftoff, the company announced in a statement today (Aug. 12). So far, teams have repaired nine of the craft’s 13 problematic valves.
