Boing’s new Starliner unmanned spacecraft must have docked with the ISS on Saturday, but an error in the mission’s “elapsed time” counter prevented him from placing himself in the correct orbit.

The Boeing space capsule Starliner, unmanned on board, landed in the New Mexico desert in the western United States, after failing to dock with ISS.

Images transmitted by NASA showed the capsule’s return to Earth, during the night, after a descent contained by three huge parachutes.

CST-100 Starliner must have docked the ISS on Saturday, but an error in the mission’s software prevented it from placing itself in the correct orbit. Therefore, Boeing and NASA decided to bring Starliner back to Earth after 48 hours, six days ahead of schedule.

The capsule, which only has one dummy on board, landed at the base of White Sands, a minute later than planned.

Starliner’s partial failure is another blow to Boeing, which still suffers the aftermath of two fatal accidents on its 737 Max plane. Boeing plans to suspend production of this model in January.
