Dodgy Starliner Delays

Starliner’s uncrewed test is now NET August, and Chris Gebhardt, for NASASpaceflight, has a pretty brutal piece that’s definitely worth reading on it:

All of this together begs the serious question of why the NASA release placed onus for the delay first and foremost on ULA and the Atlas V launch schedule – especially since ULA would have been told by Boeing not to stack the Atlas V for an April mission of Starliner months ago and since it is clear from this release that Starliner itself is not yet ready to fly.
