As you might know, SpaceX succeeded in being highly recognized due to its advanced performance and daring missions. Also, it produced space-faring hardware that could be easily reconditioned. The Falcon rockets, for example, can be reutilized many times, lowering the turnaround period between decreasing costs and launches.
Currently, however, with a rivalry between SpaceX and Boeing increasing, Boeing is claiming that its own Starliner crew spaceship could be, too, easily reconditioned for following journeys into space. How much will matter such a thing and how easily Boeing will perform the recondition processes time will tell.
According to SpaceflightNow, Boeing’s engineers are incredibly sure about Starliner’s recondition. They stated that the spaceship would only need small procedures to be redone between journeys and space. Such intriguing news is perfect for NASA, but only if they turn out to be true. Boeing and SpaceX are startled in a competition to be the first to transport a crew-skilled spaceship for NASA.
Boeing Starliner Could Get Another Chance
NASA, on the other hand, it seems that it got tired with the Russian rockets and desires something different for the first time in decades. The space agency wants to transport astronauts into space no matter when. Boeing and SpaceX both have a lot of expectations and a lot to work for finishing such a mission.
Recently, however, a Boeing Starliner test flight to the ISS failed after it turned out that the spacecraft got some issues with its internal timer. Despite this, Boeing is still confident about its mission because it wants to be great for NASA.
The engineers think that maybe if Starliner were crewed, the issue could be resolved successfully. Also, they believe a recondition of the spacecraft would be performed easily in a short time. We can only hope for the best, of we want to witness one of the most daring missions ever done.
