Boeing, in collaboration with NASA and the U.S. Army, is working to land its CST-100 Starliner spacecraft. It is expected that the device will be able to land in White Sands, New Mexico, December 22. NASA is going to broadcast live from orbit and the landing site, starting at 16:34 (hereinafter – Moscow time). The impulse of the engine, which will take the ship out of orbit, is scheduled for 7:23, landing at 7:57.

The Boeing Starliner spacecraft was launched on Friday with the Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 at the Air Force Base in Florida. The flight program included docking with the ISS. However, the ship did not enter the planned orbit, so it will not be able to dock with the space station. The ship has enough fuel to land.
