Moon lacked a magnetic field for nearly all its history – new research resolves mystery sparked by rocks brought back on Apollo
Scientists have studying lunar samples brought back from Apollo missions to understand the geologic history of the Moon. NASASurrounding Earth is a powerful magnetic field created by swirling liquid iron in the planet’s core. Earth’s magnetic field may be nearly as old as the Earth itself – and stands in stark contrast to the Moon, which completely lacks a magnetic field today. But did the Moon’s core generate a magnetic field in the past? In the 1980s, geophysicists studying rocks brought back
(Reuters) -Boeing Co scrubbed the launch of its CST-100 Starliner to the International Space Station on Tuesday due to a system glitch, a fresh setback for the U.S. aerospace company following the vehicle's botched 2019 debut. Boeing engineers ruled out "a number of potential causes, including software," but were still working to understand the source of "unexpected valve position indications" in the propulsion system, Boeing said in a statement Tuesday evening. "Additional time is needed to complete the assessment," Boeing said, adding that it would also not proceed with the next potential launch window on Wednesday.

Boeing's chance at redemption for its Starliner spacecraft will have to wait for now. The launch attempt scheduled for Tuesday was scrubbed at the last minute, NASA said. The attempt was scrubbed "due to unexpected valve position indications in the Starliner propulsion system," NASA noted.

Boeing's Starliner capsule will conduct a long-awaited test that includes docking at the International Space Station. Here's how to watch the launch, which takes place at 1:20PM ET.
Boeing Co's CST-100 Starliner capsule is poised to blast off on Tuesday from Florida's Cape Canaveral bound for the International Space Station in a crucial do-over test flight following a near-catastrophic failure during its 2019 debut. It also marks a key trial for the U.S. aerospace giant after back-to-back crises - a pandemic that crushed demand for new planes and a safety scandal caused by two fatal 737 MAX crashes - that have damaged Boeing's finances and engineering reputation. If all goes according to plan, the Starliner capsule loaded with supplies will blast off atop an Atlas V rocket flown by the United Launch Alliance, a partnership of Boeing and Lockheed Martin Corp, at 1:20 p.m. EDT (1720 GMT) from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

Boeing is all set to make a second attempt at flying its Starliner CST-100 commercial crew spacecraft to the International Space Station, performing a key demonstration ahead of actually putting astronauts on board for the final big launch before it can claim the spacecraft is certified for regular flight by NASA. Today's "Orbital Flight Test 2" (OFT-2) mission is a re-do of one that Boeing and NASA first performed in December, 2019. Boeing instead looked to salvage the test with a landing attempt, which also encountered a problem that was corrected before a good touchdown.
