Earlier this day, the newest Starliner spacecraft launched in Florida on the Atlas V booster in its first test flight to the International Space Station.

The United States' new Starliner spacecraft, which launched on its first test flight to the International Space Station (ISS) this morning suffered an 'off-nominal' insertion, Boeing said on Friday.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said that the spacecraft was now in a stable orbit.

He added that more details would be announced at an upcoming press conference.

Starliner, constructed by Boeing under a contract with NASA, was launched aboard an Atlas V carrier from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 6.36 a.m. local time (11:36 GMT).
