The US space agency (NASA) and Boeing plan to carry out the Orbital Flight Test-2 (OTF-2) unmanned test mission to the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday.
This is the second unmanned test mission of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft in collaboration with NASA.
The Starliner will be launched with a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, NASA announced yesterday, Friday.
According to the mission’s design, the Starliner is expected to dock with the International Space Station (ISS) about 24 hours after launch, carrying 250 kilograms of supplies and equipment. He will stay there for 5-10 days before leaving the ISS to return to Earth.
The spacecraft will return carrying about 300 kilograms of cargo, including reusable tanks used to supply oxygen to members of the International Space Station.
