Two Nasa astronauts were on their way to the International Space Station after Boeing’s pioneering Starliner capsule finally made its much-delayed first crewed flight from Cape Canaveral. The liftoff came seven years after the spacecraft’s original target date, five years after the failure of an uncrewed test flight and following a more recent series of postponements for technical reasons that resulted launch attempts aborted twice. The veteran astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams reached orbit 12 minutes after the 10.52am ET launch.
