NASA's Space to Ground: Boeing Starliner's Success!

Week of May 27, 2022: NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station. The seven Expedition 67 crew members are resuming their normal schedule of science and maintenance activities following the departure of Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. The orbital residents focused on vein scans, robotics, and a host of other space research onboard the International Space Station on May 26, 2022.

NASA and Boeing completed its Orbital Flight Test-2 mission on Wednesday. NASA Flight Engineers Kjell Lindgren and Bob Hines monitored the crew ship’s arrival last week, conducted cargo and test operations inside the vehicle, then closed the hatch on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, before finally seeing Starliner undock from the Harmony module’s forward port at 2:36 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.
