Catastrophic software errors doomed Boeing’s aeroplanes and nearly destroyed its NASA spaceship. Experts blame the leadership’s ‘lack of engineering culture.’

NASA is investigating Boeing after software coding errors jeopardized its Starliner spaceship’s crucial test flight. One error caused the spaceship’s thrusters to fire too early. A second – fixed mid-flight – could have caused a catastrophic crash between two closely manoeuvring modules of the spaceship. Software flaws also caused two […]
