Boeing delayed an uncrewed flight of its Starliner capsule to the International Space Station(ISS) on Tuesday over a propulsion issue, pushing back a key test it last attempted in 2019.

The spaceship had been due to launch on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida early in the afternoon. But just over two hours before lift-off, the company tweeted it was scrubbing the flight.
