NASA shared on Monday that Boeing’s Starliner, despite last weeks rough docking at the ISS last week, delivered two astronauts to the orbital lab. The saga of Starliner continues with new leaks in its service module. NASA is checking if they can bring the astronauts back safely. Previously, three leaks were found, but now there are five. NASA remains confident in Starliner’s ability to complete its mission. The spacecraft needs just seven hours of flight to return, and it has enough helium for 70 hours. Engineers are also looking into a valve issue. Starliner is set to undock no earlier than June 18.

Starliner teams detected a helium leak before launch, two more after liftoff, and now a fourth and fifth leak with the vehicle docked at the ISS. Oh my.
