The Boeing Orbital Flight Test-2 #Starliner began its journey to @ulalaunch's Space Launch Complex-41. By the end of the day, Starliner wil be mated to the #AtlasV rocket. Launch is scheduled for May 19.
But it had a rather jarring glitch on the way 🙁

Earlier in the day, a hydraulic leak on the @ulalaunch transport vehicle caused some delays.

And then Starliner got moving. Looks like the wish below came true, with that sudden wind force that dislodged that window cover?

T-5 minutes et quelques pour #AtlasV et le décollage du satellite météorologique GOES-T depuis Cape Canaveral !
Idée fun, comme c'est un satellite météo ils ont amené un présentateur météo.
(bon pas longtemps, mais on sentait qu'ils étaient fiers du truc) Image
ET décollage ! Image

Today immediately before today's landing of @NASAPersevere, I had the honor and pleasure of discussing the significance of today's successful mission with my @dexterlearning Astronautics 101 students.

And I have good news to share, real cause for optimism.
What many grownups overlooked is today's landing of Mars Rover Perseverance–launched this past July atop one of the most successful rockets in history of space exploration: @ulalaunch's mighty #AtlasV–is the first major successful space mission for a generation of young students.
When I was 4 humans walked on the moon.
When I was 8 astronauts lived in space on Skylab.
When I was 16 the Space Shuttle launched.

These moments define me as a person. Essentially, each one led me to be looking forward to the future.

Each one fueled me with possibilities.
