The astronauts of Boeing's #Starliner Crew Flight Test, Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams, will participate from the International Space Station in a Q&A moderated by Chirag Parikh, deputy assistant to President Joe Biden and executive secretary for the White House's National Space Council.

Wilmore and Williams launched at 10:52 a.m. EDT (1452 UTC) June 5, on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida for NASA's Boeing Crew Flight Test mission. They docked to the orbiting laboratory at 1:34 p.m. EDT (1734 UTC) on June 6, and are currently in the middle of a week-long stay, testing Starliner and its subsystems as the next step in the spacecraft's certification for rotational missions as part of the agency's Commercial Crew Program.
