Boeing could postpone Starliner launch for months - report

The Boeing Co. could delay the launch of its Starliner space capsule for several months, the Wall Street Journal reported. According to people familiar with the matter, the aircraft company will probably have to remove the capsule to repair it.

Previously, Boeing stated it could go ahead with the launch in August, as it made progress with Starliner's propulsion system issues. However, the report claimed it is likely the repairs will require separating it from the rocket it is attached to, further postponing potential launches.
