10:52 ET then, supposedly.

I think that's 3:52 GMT. But don't quote me on that.

So far, so good!  Let's see if they hook up with the ISS tomorrow, or whenever!

Looks like they are having issues with leaks. 

….and thrusters. Surprised these are faults that they’ve been aware of from earlier tests but seem unresolved for the manned mission?

Does this say something about the timescales and deadlines they’re working to?

Let's hope and pray that it'll be fine.

Well..... the Starliner astronauts are still on the ISS. Helium leaks. 

I'm wondering if SpaceX Crew Dragon will have to bring them back.

 I can see the headline now, "Elon Musk Rescues Boeing Crew".  Sadly, it really does seem that if it's Boeing, it's not going.

I’m thinking it’s much more likely to be a Soyuz for the return journey….
