Boeing astronaut Chris Ferguson withdraws from Starliner test flight

WASHINGTON — Chris Ferguson, the former NASA astronaut who was to command the first crewed flight of Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner commercial crew vehicle, has withdrawn from the mission for personal reasons, the company announced Oct. 7.

Ferguson, who joined Boeing in 2011 after a NASA career that included commanding the final space shuttle mission, was to lead the Crew Flight Test (CFT) mission currently scheduled for launch in the middle of 2021, a flight that also includes NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Mike Fincke.

In an interview, Ferguson said he decided to step down from the mission because of family obligations. “It was a decision that was not made lightly,” he said. “It surrounds what has really amounted to a year that is replete with family obligations that I just do not want to risk missing.”

He didn’t elaborate on those obligations, beyond being “the best kind of family issues.”

‘Wear the damn mask and follow the science’: Chris Wallace doesn’t mince words during Fox appearance

Three days after the first presidential debate, Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19, while Joe Biden tested negative on Friday. But what of the third man on the stage Tuesday night, debate moderator and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace?

Now he’s getting tested, too.

“You can bet — I’ve already been asked by a lot of people — I’m going to have to get a test,” Wallace said Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

Wallace, 72, said he never got closer than 10 or 12 feet to the president, who did not approach him after the contentious debate ended. Biden did go over to the moderator briefly, “basically to say, ‘I bet you didn’t know you had signed up for this,’” Wallace told the morning show hosts.
