Summary: Canadian astronaut Joshua Kutryk will serve as the capcom for NASA’s Boeing Crew Flight Test of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft, overseeing its ascent, orbital insertion, re-entry, and landing. NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams will launch no earlier than May 6 from Cape Canaveral, stay at the ISS for about a week, and then return to Earth. This role gives Joshua valuable mission experience ahead of his own trip to the ISS in 2025. He joined the Starliner team in 2021 and has been involved in the spacecraft’s development and testing. Live coverage of the launch will be on NASA TV starting at 6:30 p.m. ET on May 6.
