Boeing’s Starliner returns to Earth after failed mission

Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft has landed back on earth after a timing error prevented it from docking successfully with the International Space Station. The orbital flight test was meant to show NASA that Boeing’s capsule could dock safely. Boeing’s autonomous flight control system fired at the wrong time shortly after launch which put Starliner in the wrong orbit.
