Update (2021 Aug. 3): August 3 Launch of the Boeing Starliner was scrubbed "due to unexpected valve position indications in the Starliner propulsion system" according to NASA. NASA goes on to say "Pending resolution of the forward work, our next available launch opportunity would be 12:57 p.m. EDT / 16:57 UTC on Wednesday, Aug. 4."

Boeing CST-100 Starliner space capsule, which is expected to have another, non-crewed test launch on August 3 (back-up launch date August 4). A previous test launch in December of 2019 failed to dock with the International Space Station (ISS). It was originally scheduled to launch on July 30, but that launch was scrubbed at the last minute, due to the ISS being thrown out-of-control by jet thrusters, which inadvertently activated following the addition of a new Russian space station module. The Boeing Starliner is another commercial spacecraft expected to transport NASA astronauts to the ISS, in addition to the SpaceX Crew Dragon. In this photograph, the Starliner is being placed atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V Rocket at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
