I’d like to imagine we’d go somewhere interesting, like Europa or Titan, or marginally habitable, like the upper atmosphere of Venus.

This isn’t Boeing very well… Faulty timer knackers Starliner cargo capsule on its way to International Space Station

It seems to be (wait for it…) a software problem!
