Boeing still hopes for August Starliner launch

Boeing is still hoping for an August launch of its CST-100 Starliner spacecraft as it works to restore functionality to 13 valves that failed to work as designed last week.

The spacecraft was returned to the Vertical Integration Facility at Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral after propulsion system valves unexpectedly indicated they were in the closed position during the launch countdown on August 3.

The precautionary check of the spacecraft prior to the crewless launch was made after a storm swept through the area.
