Boeing’s Starliner capsule arrived at the International Space Station on Friday evening (May 20), marking a major milestone for the aerospace giant and its quest to fly NASA astronauts to and from orbit.

Starliner took off atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on Thursday evening (May 19), launching a crucial uncrewed mission to the station called Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2). About 22 hours later, Starliner began to focus on the ISS, performing a series of flybys, approaches and retreats designed to showcase its rendezvous chops.
