CST-100 Starliner in orbit (Boeing) Boeing says its CST-100 Starliner commercial crew spacecraft is in good shape after its abbreviated test flight earlier this month. In a statement over the weekend, Boeing reported that technicians found the spacecraft to be in good condition after its two-day test flight, with "little scorching" from reentry and a cabin that looked identical to its condition prior to launch. The company didn't provide any updates on the timer glitch that canceled a planned docking at the International Space Station and shortened the flight to two days.
