Boeing crew capsule returning to Earth after aborted flight

Boeing crew capsule returning to Earth after aborted flightBoeing aimed to bring its Starliner crew capsule back to Earth on Sunday to end its first test flight, a mission cut short by an improperly set clock on the spacecraft. The Starliner — carrying no astronauts, only a test dummy — was supposed to spend the coming week at the International Space Station, part of a critical dress rehearsal for a flight with a real crew next year. The station docking was scrapped, and Boeing and NASA decided to bring the spacecraft home as soon as possible.
