Next Wednesday July 10th the NASA together with Boeing will hold a conference to discuss the agency’s manned flight test at the International Space Station. The return of the Starliner capsule mission was delayed by a month due to technical problems, leaving astronauts Suni Williams and Butch Wilmore stranded.

On the official NASA website they reported that Steve Stichdirector of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program and Mark Nappivice president and director of Boeing’s commercial crew program, will participate in a conference call to discuss a flight test.

“NASA and Boeing continue to evaluate the performance of the Starliner propulsion system and Five small helium leaks in the spacecraft’s service modulecollecting as much data as possible while docked to the International Space Station,” they said in a statement.

Following this, once all necessary ground testing and associated data analysis are complete, NASA and Boeing leaders will conduct an agency-wide review prior to returning from the orbital complex. A press conference will also be held from Earth with astronauts Williams and Wilmore to discuss their mission.

End of mission: NASA volunteers leave Mars simulator

The four volunteers They spent 378 days inside the first simulated environment of the red planet at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, and left the artificial alien environment on Saturday around 5 p.m.

Kelly Haston, Anca Selariu, Ross Brockwell and Nathan Jones entered a 3D-printed habitat on June 25, 2023, as the first crew for the Crew Health and Performance Exploration Analogue (CHAPEA) project.

The crew lived and worked in space to simulate a mission to the fourth planet counting from the Sun. The first mission attempted to look for possible conditions for future operations on Mars with simulated spacewalks, as well as growing and harvesting plants to supplement their supplies and maintain their habitat and equipment.

They also worked through challenges that a real crew would face on the planet, such as limited resources, isolation and communication delays of up to 22 minutes from their home planet to the other side of the habitat walls, NASA said.
