Washington: The American carrier Boeing spacecraft, which recently flew for the International Space Station (ISS), returned to Earth without completing its mission. The Boeing Starliner vehicle had to be diverted back to Earth due to a technical flaw. The unmanned spacecraft was launched on Friday with the help of an Atlas rocket from the Cape Canaveral Launch Center in Florida, USA.
When this was noticed, a top official of the Boeing company said that due to a clock defect, fuel consumption in the launch of the vehicle increased. With this, it was not possible for the spacecraft to reach the International Space Station (ISS) located in space 400 km above the earth. The spacecraft made landings at the White Sands Missile Range, a desert area in Mexico. A dummy was sent to this vehicle.
The vehicle will be tested: Sources say that this is the last test in the direction of sending the vehicle to space with the crew. Now NASA has to consider whether to test the vehicle again or, believing it, the spacecraft along with the crew is sent to space. The failure of this campaign has been considered a major setback for Boeing.
