(Cape Canaveral, FL) -- Boeing's Starliner spacecraft is on its way to the International Space Station.

The uncrewed test mission launched from Cape Canaveral Thursday after two previous attempts failed. Boeing said two thrusters on the spacecraft failed but the flight computer was able to compensate.

The craft carries supplies for astronauts on the ISS and a mannequin named Rosie.
