Boeing Starliner failure: Where is the CST-100? NASA confirms spacecraft is 'not in orbit' 1

Boeing’s Starliner capsule was unmanned, save for a test dummy named Rosie, wearing a polka-dot bandana and a blue spacesuit.

“She’s pretty tough. She’s going to take the hit for us,” said NASA’s Mike Fincke, one of three astronauts who are due to fly on the next Starliner mission.

It was hoped today’s test would lead to a flight with astronauts on board next year.

Also on board the Starliner were Christmas treats and presents for the six astronauts on the International Space Station, in addition to hundreds of seeds for science experiments.
