After a successful launch, Boeing’s Starliner mission is facing issues on its way to the International Space Station, according to reports. NASA shared that two additional helium leaks were detected on the spacecraft, in addition to one leak that was discovered before launch. The crew was instructed to shut down two valves to address the new leaks. NASA and Boeing have confirmed the crew’s safety and directed them to continue their journey while investigations are ongoing. The impact of the leaks remains uncertain, but the plan is still for Starliner to dock at the International Space Station.
