Sunita Williams trapped in space! Now facing difficulties in returning due to aircraft malfunction

The astronauts of Boeing Starliner have made plans for the journey since this time. Since then some problems are emerging. After technical fault twice, both the astronauts were sent to the International Space Center (ISS) for the third time. Now they are facing difficulty in coming back from ISS. Due to technical fault in the spacecraft, they are getting delayed in returning to earth. Engineers say that soon the shortage of spacecraft will be resolved and they will be brought back to Earth.

This time Butch Wilmore and Sunita Williams of Indian origin reached ISS from Starliner Spacecraft. The return module of the Starliner spacecraft has stopped at the Harmony Module of the ISS. However, only limited fuel is left in the Harmony Module. The return journey is not able to start due to helium leakage from five places in Starline. According to the report, the Starliner has five thrusters which had stopped working.

Meanwhile, users on social media are saying that space travel by Starliner is very dangerous. Now SpaceX must be sent to bring back the astronauts. Astronaut Jonathan McDowell said that even if some thrusters do not work, both astronauts can still return safely to Earth. These small problems won’t make any difference to the landing. The worst that would happen is that astronauts wait for Musk’s Dragon spacecraft at the ISS.

After two unsuccessful attempts, Boeing Starliner took off with both the astronauts on June 5. During the 25-hour journey, it was discovered that there were helium leaks from five places in the spacecraft. Five thrusters had stopped working. The manager of the Boeing Starliner program himself said that their helium system was not working as it was designed. Even the engineers don’t know what the problem is?
