The spacecraft Boeing that plans to bring astronauts to the International Space Station made its first arrival at the space station last night. The unmanned CST-100 Starliner docked with the International Space Station at 02:28 am Dutch time.
It’s an important step for Boeing. A successful unmanned test flight to the International Space Station is a prerequisite to being allowed to fly NASA astronauts. An earlier attempt failed at the end of 2019. A computer error in the system clock caused the capsule to enter the wrong orbit, preventing the capsule from reaching the International Space Station.

Travel blog Capture the Atlas organizes a competition each year for photographers who know how to best photograph our Milky Way. Just capturing the distinct nebula is a challenge, as even the slightest bit of light pollution interferes with vision. Moreover, the Milky Way in the northern hemisphere is clearly visible only from February to October and from January to November from the southern hemisphere.
But if these conditions are met, images are created that are no less than small works of art, according to the selection of the most beautiful images submitted this year from Capture the Atlas.
