On Friday morning, Boeing’s Starliner spaceship was launched via an Atlas 5 rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The Starliner spaceship is designed to shuttle astronauts back and forth from Earth to the International Space Station (ISS). The test flight has no one on board and is being used to check out the flight systems.

Shortly after launch, CNBC’s Jodi Gralnick has just tweeted that Boeing’s Starliner spaceship “is assessing an “off-nominal insertion,” meaning the crew capsule did not achieve the proper orbit.”

At the moment, it’s unclear if this means the Starliner’s trip to the ISS has been aborted.

NASA will be holding a press conference at 9 am est. on the developments. 

How has social media responded to the incident?
