The Atlantic reported the launch as follows. “A Boeing spacecraft launched from the coast of Florida into orbit this morning, taking off in the kind of picture-perfect weather that every rocket hopes for in Cape Canaveral. Two veteran NASA astronauts are now on their way to the International Space Station. This particular commute to the space station is a major moment in American space travel. Barry Wilmore, the mission commander, and Sunita Williams, the pilot, are test-driving the new vehicle, known as Starliner. It’s the first time Boeing has launched astronauts into space, and the first time a woman has flown a trial of a new orbital spacecraft.”
