The much anticipated first crewed launch of Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft is slated for June 1. In a special Dome@Home livestream, we’ll cover the launch live as astronauts Sunita Williams and Barry Wilmore will ride Starliner to the International Space Station and check out the ship’s systems. This test flight will pave the way for the flight of Canadian astronaut Josh Kutryk’s 6-month mission to the ISS later in the year.

NOTE: Launch dates and times may change based on NASA schedules and operational concerns. We’ll update times and dates as they become available.
