Boeing’s starliner won’t meet up with space station after error

An error in the programming in the Boeing’s starliner means that it won’t complete it’s original plan to meet up with the space station, it will return safely and a in-depth investigation will look for exactly what went wrong.

So an almost complete success with a timing glitch that could have easily been corrected by crew if it had been manned being the only issue. The capsule reached a stable orbit and would have no issue correcting if it had more propellant. Sounds like Boeing has become the official front runner in the commercial space race.

I guess we know where the engineers from the 737 MAX team got relocated to. Seriously though, these kinds of errors making it into production is inexcusable. It sounds like Boeing has a culture problem. Unfortunately so does Earth.
