NASA astronauts excited to watch Boeing’s Starliner launch to space station Thursday

Butch Wilmore, Mike Fincke and Suni Williams are all military test pilots and NASA astronauts, and they’re eager for Boeing’s new spacecraft to prove itself so they can climb aboard.

NASA held a press conference Wednesday (May 18), a day before the planned launch of Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft on a crucial uncrewed test flight to the International Space Station (ISS). Agency leaders, including NASA associate administrator Bob Cabana and human spaceflight chief Kathy Lueders, were joined by the three astronauts, who have been training as future Starliner crewmembers.
