Starliner has left New Mexico en route to Florida where the spacecraft will be further evaluated and processed at the Starliner Production Factory ahead of upcoming missions to the International Space Station.
After a successful landing and recovery at the conclusion of the spacecraft’s first orbital flight test, Starliner was moved into the Flight Test Integration Facility at Launch Complex 32 on White Sands Missile Range. Teams prepared the vehicle for transport and downloaded stored flight data, which will allow for detailed post-flight analysis while Starliner makes its way cross country.
The American-made orbital crew capsule, which became the first to land on land after returning from orbit last month, will travel through six key U.S. states, all of which played a role in the design, build, and test of this particular reusable spacecraft.
Starliner’s journey is expected to take about 10 days.
