Florida’s humidity may have nobbled Starliner

Boeing engineers suspect Florida’s humid weather may have played a part in disrupting the August 3 launch of the company’s beleaguered Starliner spacecraft.

The Starliner headed back to the factory after the company announced on August 13 that the capsule would be “destacked” from the Atlas V rocket that was supposed to launch it into space from Cape Canaveral on August 3.

It will remain at the  Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing facility for “deeper level troubleshooting” after around-the-clock attempts to fix 13 stuck oxidizer valves failed to get four working before time ran out.
