The US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has postponed the launch of the Starliner space capsule to the International Space Station after the orbital station got out of control for a "brief period".
The launch of the capsule was announced a day before it was scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard an Atlas 5 rocket, produced by Lockheed Martin and Boeing.
And NASA indicated that it decided with Boeing to postpone the launch date to the third of next August.
"We wanted to make sure we had room to fully assess the situation on the space station before adding another vehicle to the station," NASA's Kathy Luders told reporters during a conference call.
The previous test launch of the unmanned Starliner space capsule into orbit in 2019 ended in a catastrophic failure to dock with the space station.
