NASA/BOEING MEDIA TELECON ON INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF BOEING STARLINER OFT ANOMALIES, Feb 7, 2020, virtual, 3:30 pm ET

(audiocast)

NASA and Boeing announced late today (Thursday) that they will hold a media telecon tomorrow, February 7, 2020, at 3:30 pm ET to discuss the Independent Review Team investigation into software anomalies on Boeing’s Orbital Flight Test of its Starliner commercial crew system in December.

The decision to hold the telecon came hours after NASA’s Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) revealed that a second software error was discovered during the flight by ground controllers who were able to fix it in-flight.  ASAP reported that if it had not been discovered and fixed, the result would have been catastrophic.  We posted an article about ASAP’s report earlier today.

Audio of the telecon will be livestreamed on NASA Live.  Participants are:

  • NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine
  • Jim Chilton, senior vice president, Boeing Space and Launch
  • Douglas Loverroassociate administrator, NASA’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate
  • Kathy Lueders, program manager, NASA’s Commercial Crew Program
  • John Mulholland, vice president and program manager, Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner Program
