The first flight to the ISS of the new American spacecraft Starliner with a crew on board postponed

The first test flight with a crew to the ISS of the new American spacecraft Starliner, developed by Boeing, is postponed to a later date. The corresponding decision was made by NASA and the ship's development company.


According to NASA, the new timing of the first flight of Starliner has not yet been precisely determined, but the flight is not planned until September this year. The reasons for the transfer are not named, but with a high probability it can be argued that NASA is "reinsuring" because of the software installed on the ship, which caused problems during the Starliner unmanned flight to the ISS in 2019.

NASA and Boeing plan no earlier than September 2021 ... the first flight of the Starliner with a crew

- says the NASA website.

Initially, the first Starliner test flight with a crew to the ISS was planned for 2020, but then it was postponed to March this year. NASA astronauts Barry Wilmore, Nicole Aunapu Mann and Michael Fink were supposed to go to the station.

Recall that the first launch in December 2019 of the newest American manned spacecraft Starliner, developed by Boeing, ended in an abnormal situation. The spacecraft entered orbit, but was never able to dock with the ISS due to engine failure. Subsequently, the ship was successfully landed. As it turned out, the reason for this was "a lot of problems" with the ship's software.

In January of this year, Boeing announced the elimination of all software problems and announced the first flight of the ship with a crew on board in March 2021.

      Starliner with deadlines going to the right looks bad only against the background of Crew Dragon, which turned out surprisingly well. And against the general background - it is standard.

        The trend is towards universal digitalization. The same Boeing tried to treat even the disturbed centering of the 737max with the help of software. The result is well known - aerodynamics defeated computer science. sad

          even misalignment


          You are apparently completely ignorant in this matter, centering in the longitudinal axis is regulated by the front and rear fuel tanks, the weight of the loaded luggage in the front or rear compartment.
          We somehow even removed the seats in the front cabin of the Tu-154B and recorded 5 tons of cargo according to documents, but in fact it was 7500 kg.
          + -1500 kg forward / backward do not really feel in control :))
          And about the existence of centering front / rear fuel tanks - apparently have not heard?

            Apparently a layman, it is impossible to know everything about everything. For what I bought, for what I sell.
            During the development of the 737 MAX aircraft, the engines were replaced with more powerful and efficient ones with an increased fan diameter. However, due to their larger size, the new engines could not be replaced in place of the old ones - they had to be carried forward and fixed higher

            To mitigate the trend towards an increase in pitch due to new flight geometry due to the engines being farther forward and higher than previous engines, Boeing has added a new agility enhancement system.

            And this "system" and ruined him. Something like that. Not everything can be compensated for with software and luggage.

              Let's remember the first B-737 hundredth series

              comparable to the 500-800 series

              How far the engines are moved up and forward and the alignment has changed.
              Compared to the 800 and NG, the 737 MAX received minor changes in handling, and the hidden MCAS software was designed to level these differences.
              Boeing release in 2019
              Boeing acknowledged that MCAS played a role in both accidents ... MCAS was designed to mimic the behavior of a similar aircraft in the previous generation of the series, the Boeing 737 NG.

              This was done for the convenience of the pilots, so as not to retrain the crews and save time on certification of new software.
              Crime - the pilot must know the specifics of the controls

                It was done in a hurry in an attempt to get ahead of the Airbus A320neo in the market. Therefore, they saved on fine-tuning the airframe, which was still required with such a major replacement of engines. We decided to replace it with a digital software patch. And at the same time they decided to save money on certification (as if the plane did not change much, and new certification is not needed), and, accordingly, on pilot retraining (since the plane has hardly changed, there is nothing to teach). And that's how it happened. Kroilovo traditionally leads to a popalov. As a result, both people died, and Boeing himself is deep in the anus.

                  Stop - the diameter of the engine is slightly increased - the front landing gear was lengthened by 20 cm, the engine mount was shifted - not drastically - a few tens of cm, so that the gap between the air intake and the strip would remain the same.
                  LEAP-1B CFM dry weight 2780 kg
                  CFM56-7B18 dry weight 2380 kg
                  the difference of 2x400 kg in weight does not radically affect the longitudinal balancing.
                  And the tendency to increase the pitch is provided for by the design and is regulated by the angle of the stabilizers.

        Starliner has manual and all things to do. And Boeing and NASA unanimously declared that if the crew were on board, the astronauts would fix everything. Only this is not a reason to launch astronauts with buggy software.

        this is correct, but if the cargo version of the ship is used in a mission, without a crew !? Or the notorious "human factor" will make the notorious adjustments, it is banal to deteriorate the health of the pilot, after launching or a long stay in orbit, in outer space "different things" happen to the human psyche, and then what !?, all the corpses or what is worse will happen in the docking mode with the ISS, with "adequate actions" of the crew ..!?

      Since Soviet times, it has become a tradition that most of our domestic programs were performed in automatic mode (Gagarin, Buran, docking / undocking) .. this despite the fact that our electronics, to put it mildly, was lame ..
      At the same time, the Americans, despite their breakaway in this area, preferred to trust humans more in space (Shepard, Shuttle)

              We have a large program planned for the Sphere project. The system consists of several groups of spacecraft. The start of launches within the framework of the program is planned from 2024.

              Extra-budgetary funding from the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Cosmic Communications" (own and borrowed funds) under the Sphere program for the period from 2022 to 2030 is estimated at more than 40 billion rubles.
              On the part of "Space Communications" it is planned to develop communications and broadcasting spacecraft of the "Express" series and promising highly elliptical satellites "Express-RV".

              Gazprom Space Systems plans to raise a total of about 100 billion rubles under the program. The program from the Gazprom subsidiary includes three areas:
              - creation of an assembly plant for spacecraft in Shchelkovo,
              - formation and development of the "Smotr" space remote sensing system,
              - development of the Yamal satellite communications system.

              The ISS company has already begun the development and creation of new small spacecraft of the so-called "devices-devices" of the "Marathon-IoT" group.

                  Sounds like the Americans are feeding our astronauts? Cho for nonsense?
                  We have separate nutritional institutes that develop and manufacture food for astronauts. Don't be bullshit here. Smells of stupidity.

                    Earlier, the head of the nutrition department of the Institute of Biomedical Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander Agureev, told RIA Novosti that the Russian side asked the United States to deliver food for the Russian cosmonauts on board. However, the Americans responded by offering to share their food, since they still have a lot of supplies on the ISS.

                    and the headline is what "The United States began to feed the Russian cosmonauts who were left without food"

                    I wonder what the headlines were when NASA's toilet broke and they went to ours?

    Colleague, let Roscosmos have a headache about payback. Especially in the case of the "Angara".
    The mask, after using the first stages ten times, can generally carry air. Without any harm to yourself. By the way, this time (10th start) is not far off.
    And the worries of the richest person in the world (sometimes losing this status for a while) are slightly different today.
    It's not about haste.
    And in the monstrous speed of turnover of steps, in the highest culture of production, in the use of the latest technologies.

      Especially in the case of the "Angara". And what about the Angara, it seems like it is being modernized to significantly reduce the cost of launches, but it is created primarily for military and internal needs when the Proton is shut down.

        How can you reduce the cost of a product that is not in mass production?
        What, the weight of the device will decrease? Not a single gram. Only the amount of material used for production can decrease. But this requires a stream. For development of technologies, conductors, devices and other things. And in Omsk, even four products a year, given the current state of affairs, will not last. What to talk about?
        The hangara can only rise in price if, at last, the hydrogen plant is adapted to the third stage. Again, if, of course, they do it in the end.

            First, not "you", but "you".
            I don’t remember herding pigs in my early childhood, or drinking broodershaft when I was older.
            Secondly, not all data is contained in your favorite Vika. And as long as space, as you can understand, is your strong point, then you should at least occasionally be interested in events related to it.
            In particular, it is necessary to listen to Mr. Rogozin less. Did he talk about 8 missiles a year? That's not what he said yet.
            And you need to listen to a knowledgeable person. For example, the head of the Khrunichev Center Alexei Varochko. Appreciate what he says. For example, in December last year (2 months ago) on the air of the "Military Acceptance" program on the "Zvezda" TV channel.
            And the head of the TsiH said literally the following:
            "At the Omsk site, all production is focused today so that in 2020-2022 we will constantly increase the production of cars. Now the capabilities of the Omsk site are the maximum production of two cars per year. Starting from 2021-2022, we will switch already for 3-4 cars a year and after the completion of the investment project, this is the end of 2023, this is 4-6 cars. "
            On my own I will add: this is only on condition that the modernization of production sites is completed.

              Well, yes, "I know something, but I won't tell you." Clear. Do you have any complaints about the tanks of the seventh product? Well, here's a shot of tanks from the sixth product, missile # 71756, flashed in a recent video:

              That's right, the series is planned for 2024. Two years later, the flight design tests of the missiles will just end. Eight launches including two that have already passed. Varochko, by the way, is Rogozin's subordinate.

    Russian cosmonauts at the International Space Station ran out of food. The problem arose due to the postponement of the launch of the Progress cargo vehicle, RIA Novosti reports. The spacecraft was supposed to leave for the ISS on December 11, but due to additional checks, the launch was postponed to February 15
