The first astronaut mission aboard the Boeing Starliner is grounded indefinitely.

Starliner will not launch as planned on Saturday (May 25), which was the latest launch date after several delays in recent weeks. NASA officials communicated the delay late Tuesday (May 21) and did not yet provide a specific cause. But the team has been investigating a small helium leak in a Starliner thruster in recent weeks.
