Astronauts stranded in space due to multiple problems with Boeing Starliner — and the window for a return flight is closing

NASA astronauts who traveled to orbit on Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft are currently stranded in space aboard the International Space Station (ISS) after engineers discovered several problems with Boeing’s spacecraft. Teams on the ground are now racing to assess the Starliner’s condition.

Astronauts Butch Wilmore and Sonny Williams were originally scheduled to return to Earth on June 13 after a week on the International Space Station, but their stay has been extended for a second time due to ongoing problems. The astronauts will now return home no later than June 26, according to NASA.
