NASA is reassigning one of the astronauts who was to fly on a commercial crew mission later this year. NASA said Tuesday that Eric Boe was being removed from the crew of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner crewed test flight because of an unspecified medical issue. He will be replaced by fellow NASA astronaut Mike Fincke, who has been working as the assistant to the chief of the astronaut office for commercial crew, a role that Boe will now take over. The other two people on that mission, NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Boeing pilot Chris Ferguson, will remain on the flight. That test flight is currently scheduled for no earlier than August.
