Starliner Pad Abort Test on NASA TV

Monday morning, Boeing will conduct a pad abort test with its Starliner crew spacecraft. The test will take place within a 3-hour window beginning at 9am EST (14:00 UTC). This will test the capsule’s ability to escape safely with the crew in the event of a “bad day” while the rocket is still on, or close to, the ground.

Watch it live on NASA TV (available on YouTube) starting at 8:50am EST (13:50 UTC).
