NASA: ‘Joint, independent team’ will probe Boeing Starliner orbital glitch

NASA: ‘Joint, independent team’ will probe Boeing Starliner orbital glitch

Science
Jan. 8 (UPI) -- NASA is establishing a "joint, independent team" to probe the failure of Boeing's Starliner space capsule to reach the International Space Station during a test flight. The investigation comes as NASA is feeling pressure to stop relying on Russian Soyuz capsules to carry astronauts to the station. Boeing and its competitor, SpaceX, are years behind schedule in developing a new spacecraft to carry people. Starliner was launched Dec. 20 without a crew, and a problem with its mission clock caused it to burn fuel needlessly. That meant it wasn't able to reach the orbit necessary to catch up with the space station. Despite the problem, Boeing and NASA said the test mission accomplished most of its goals. Initial data showed the capsule was a safe environment in which to carry ...

India aborts moon mission launch citing technical glitch

Technology
India has temporarily deferred its dream of a soft landing on the lunar south pole, aborting the launch of its second moon mission on Monday less than an hour before liftoff. The Chandrayaan-2 mission was called off when a "technical snag" was observed in the 640-ton, 14-story launch-vehicle system, said Indian Space Research Organization spokesman B.R. Guruprasad. The countdown abruptly stopped at T-56 minutes, 24 seconds, and Guruprasad said that the agency would announce a revised launch date soon. Chandrayaan, the word for "moon craft" in Sanskrit, is designed for a soft landing on the far side of the moon and to send a rover to explore water deposits confirmed by a previous Indian space mission. With nuclear-armed India poised to become the world's fifth-largest economy, the ardently...
