Boeing's new Starliner spacecraft landed in the New Mexico desert on Sunday morning — days after the NASA mission failed because the capsule's clock was improperly set, and the capsule ended up in the wrong orbit.
Yes, things didn't go quite right, but the spacecraft landed. It was recovered. Folks, space flight is hard. It's not easy to do what we're trying to do. And in case anyone wants a little context, the crew of the Apollo 1 mission died. We've had two Space Shuttles disintegrate; one on take off, and one on landing. The Ruskies had space craft blow the fuck up with people inside.
So we got a spacecraft that made orbit, landed and was recovered but didn't quite accomplish what people had hoped? Dude, I'll take it. Learn from the mistakes and move on to bigger and better things. Finally.
