US launched the first Starliner spacecraft into wrong orbit.
19:23

On December 20, 2019 at 11:36 UTC the Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft (Boe-OFT mission) was launched from SLC-41 of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The space vehicle was orbited by the "Atlas-5” rocket-carrier. CST means Crew Space Transportation. Boe-OFT means Boeing Orbital Flight Test. It was the first orbital mission of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft, conducted by Boeing as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. This unpiloted demonstration mission was planned to be an 8-day test flight of the spacecraft, involving the docking to the International Space Station. But the spacecraft flew into the wrong orbit soon after lifting off and burnt too much fuel. The docking with the ISS became impossible.
